Primavera: Festas, Wildflowers, and Inspiration (5/6)

The excellent writer & facilitator Chris DeLorenzo (of Laguna Writers) is co-leading (with Sharon Smith) a daylong writing retreat up in Forestville at the beginning of May — I whole-heartedly recommend Chris’  (AWA method) workshops to anyone looking for a safe and fun place to write. And check this one out: fresh new writing and amazing food? Talk about sensory inspiration.

Workshop forming for mixed race women

I received this note from Esther, a former workshop participant — write to her at bionicfemme@hotmail.com if you’d like more information about hew new workshop:

“Hi Jen, Now that we have graduated from the Master’s program at New College, one of my classmates, Monalisa and I are starting up a writer’s workshop! This group is for all mixed race women of color who are interested in generating creative writing, memoir, and other multi-genre literary work to reflect their experiences as multi-racial women of color. Our concentration is on experimental lit, but linear, traditional narratives are welcome as well. We will also be performing as part of New College’s local writer series at a public reading in the coming months. Please let me know if you have any workshop participants that might be interested, and tell your friends! We’d really like to get the word out and grow as a community. We submit our work to the group on the second weekend of every month, then meet up for coffee during the fourth weekend, to go over each other’s work and in general, just bond as a community of mixed race writers. Hope you are doing well! -Esther”
