Whitney French Writes presents...

:: W R I T I N G W H I L E B L A C K O T T A W A ::


Join us for a gathering of black writers and black creative thinkers for an afternoon of writing. Through dialogue, discussion, readings and writing exercises, we will support one another in the space and offer feedback on our upcoming writings.

After the success of last year's visit during the #WritingWhileBlackTour, Toronto-based writer and WWB founder, Whitney French returns to Ottawa to deliver another intimate and powerful session. Even if you don't "think" you're a writer, come through, this workshop is for you too.

Let's get to work!
