Cave Canem, Kundiman, Canto Mundo, VONA, Kimbilio, and others recognize the need to provide writers of color with the kind of community and workshop space that encourages taking risks, resisting stereotypes (in ourselves, others, and in our writing), and creating poems, stories, novels, and essays that speak to the range of our experience as human beings. This workshop shares these intentions and seeks to provide Houston writers of color with the freedom and support offered by these organizations.
This workshop is open to writers of all races typically underrepresented in American literature, including but not limited to writers who identify themselves as African-American or Caribbean; Asian-American; Middle-Eastern; Chicano, Hispanic, and Latino. For those worried that this will be a group therapy session, know that it will not be this. Just as with any writing workshop, we will study the craft of prose and poetry, whether literary fiction or slam or sci-fi, consider what the work is trying to say, and explore what possibilities it can open up for our writing.
Meets six Tuesdays from 6-9 PM between April 14th-May 19th
