archiving the resistance, divestment & transcendence of gender
a workshop for trans / gender non-conforming writers
Winter Tangerine is proud to present Open By Riot Laughter, a workshop for Trans & GNC Writers. OPRL is a week-long intensive writing workshop from December 10th through 16th, that includes full writing lessons, prompts, guided writing generation activities & guest seminars by KOKUMO & TC Colbert.
Trans life is more than a trend. It is more than the few news stories marking death. It is more than legislative terrorism. Trans life is celebrating all that holds our bodies outside of the limitations of binary. There has never not been a need for trans & GNC voices to be cultivated, refined, protected. In these times of abject & emboldened hate, trans voices must document themselves. Our goal is to continue to blossom the voices doing the urgent work of documenting their truths in a world that renders them invisible. OBRL is for transgender, gender & all gender non-conforming writers.
Applications are free and open until November 15th. Tuition is $75. Financial aid is available to those with need. There is no age limit or requirement, and no experience is necessary.
