After the successful #WritingWhileBlackTour16, we are returning to Montreal for another creative writing session specifically for black writers. And this time, we're delving deeper! Writing While Black seeks encourage literary exploration while addressing challenges and triumphs black authors encounter as they secure their place as a writer.
Writing While Black is a community centre, people-powered workshop series is tailored to black writers at all stages of their writing journey (beginner, emerging, mid-career, established) writing in any genre or discipline (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, journalism, dramatic writing, spoken word etc.). The main goal of the workshops is to create a safe space and develop a community of black writers who can provide support to one another's artistic projects.
Through dialogue, discussion, readings and writing exercises, we will support one another in the space and offer feedback on our upcoming writings. Even if you don't "think" you're a writer, come through!
