About this event

Join Zora's House for a 6-week writing workshop series in community faciliated by Ajanae Dawkins:

Sacred is a 6 week generative writing workshop that takes seriously the ideas that writing is a faith practice and that the work of Black writers reveals something about our relationship with God. Participants will leave with a new way to understand the relationship between their faith and writing as well as new approaches to critically reading past and contemporary Black writers. This workshop is primarily for Black women, WOC, and femmes.

This 6 week series will take place Thursdays from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm from February 16-March 30.
