In the third iteration of our workshop for queer writers, we return to one of the deepest tenants of Winter Tangerine’s mission: to catalyze self-revolution. Queer people globally across gender are facing life under explicitly antagonistic administrations & the continuous rise of conservative political rhetoric. In We Sweat Honeysuckle, we will hold ourselves into the light of endless potential through rigorous examinations and reimaginations of both personal and cultural queerness. Close study of writing, visual art & other media by queer creators will serve as guide & inspiration to better inform our craft.
We Sweat Honeysuckle is a two-week long writing intensive workshop from July 15th to July 28th that includes full writing lessons, innovative prompts, guided writing generation activities & two Guest Seminars, which are hour-long web classes with writers we love. This year's seminars include the brilliant Roy Guzman. Previous Guest Seminars for We Sweat Honeysuckle have been given by Danez Smith, Aziza Barnes, Shira Erlichman, and Chen Chen.
We encourage you to embark on this creative journey with us as we navigate new ways to sculpt language through the urgent lens of queer identity.
Applications are free and open until April 1st. Tuition is $175. Financial aid is available to those with need. There is no age limit or requirement, and no experience is necessary.
