In the second 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 & rise of conservative political rhetoric. We Sweat Honeysuckle is an exploration into the ways queer writers can challenge themselves -- through interrogations of language, art & media by queer creators -- to better inform their craft.
WSH is a two-week long writing intensive workshop from July 9th to July 22nd, that includes full writing lessons, prompts, guided writing generation activities & guest seminars by Aziza Barnes and Chen Chen.
We encourage you to embark on this creative journey with us as we navigate new ways to interrogate language, through the urgent lens of queer identity.
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.
