Femina Potens Announces a Writers Workshop for Women & Queers
WRITE HERE! WRITE NOW!
WRITERS’ WORKSHOP FOR WOMEN & QUEERS
Beginning the last week of May, Femina Potens will be offering an intensive writers’ workshop for women and Queers directed by the talented Beth Mattson. The work shop will culminate in a reading performance with the National Queer Arts Festival on Thursday, June 25th. The theme of the workshop will be Identity, and poets and creative non-fiction authors are welcome if comfortable with the fiction writers’ perspective. Authors will meet for four weeks on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, starting on May 26th, from 7:00 - 10:00pm. The group will be capped at a total of nine authors, and there will be a flat fee of $80 to help cover the costs of the reading and workshop space. No one will be turned away for lack of funds, but contact the gallery quickly, as the first nine writers to make a deposit will be included in the workshop, and the rest will be placed on a waiting list.
To make a $20 deposit and reserve your place in June’s intensive Identity workshop, please purchase a Workshop Deposit Ticket as soon as possible at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/60371 (the remaining amount will be due on May 26th).
Please email Beth Mattson at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, interest or sliding scale inquiries. And keep your literary eyes wide open - starting in July, Femina will also be offering broader, longer writers’ workshops.
