In the landscape of femininity, a whole language forms for how we approach language. Orchids Without Attached Thighs creates a place for femme & non-binary writers to upend & re-imagine the feminine though language & personal exploration. This space is to cultivate the power for those transcending the patriarchal contexts for the literary world.
OWAT is a two-week long writing intensive workshop from September 23rd to October 5th, that includes full writing lessons, prompts, guided writing generation activities & guest seminars by Joshua Jennifer Espinoza and Tafisha Edwards.
We hope to continue to rupture the contexts of writing with needed voices from outside the institution of gender hierarchy & truly navigate gender from a place of resistance.
OWAT is for femme and nonbinary writers. Applications are free and open until June 15th. Tuition is $150. Financial aid is available to those with need. There is no age limit or requirement, and no experience is necessary.
The title of this workshop comes from the poem, Donna by Frances Saux, published in WT’s third volume.
