New Suns is the first annual Seattle Black Feminists (SBF) writing retreat for Black women. Through independent writing, group discussions, and workshops, approximately 20 Black women will collectively explore literary traditions. In addition to workshops, there will be plenty of time allocated for participants to work on individual projects. Whether it is a dissertation, thesis, novel, or writing in a journal all weekend long. Writers of all levels, whether beginning, professional, or those who are interested in learning what it means to write in the Black feminist tradition, are welcome.
For information about attending, please visit the event page on Seattle Black Feminists website.
