The writing circle will meet online on a weekly basis over the period of two months. During the first two meetings (April 10 and 17), we will alternate between discussions and writing time. The discussions will be a space of solidarity where we can go over our relationship with our writing as we navigate isolation and precarity, and collectively make space for our practice.
