Join NYWC’s inaugural Queens-based Workshop Leader cohort!

After fifteen years, NY Writers Coalition is rooting down in the best borough ever: Queens! This summer NYWC will host its first Queens-based Workshop Leader Training, and we want writers and activists like YOU to lead the charge in this transformative work. Members of NYWC’s Summer 2017 Cohort will be Queens-based community members and/or have a strong interest in facilitating NYWC’s signature workshops in the borough. Whether you live in Astoria, Hollis, Jamaica, or all the way in Howard Beach, your passion to build community in Queens via creative writing is what we’re after.

Please join NYWC staff and other artists interested in training (and writing!) with you this summer at an info session. These Q&As are open to artists of all backgrounds, mediums, and experiences (particularly writers and visual and performing artists) who want to play an active role in a community of writers and activists. Won’t you join us?
