The AfroSurreal Writers Workshop amplifies the voices of emerging and established writers and artists of color who create surreal, futurist, speculative fiction, fantasy, science fiction, horror, dystopian, apocalyptic, weird, or absurdist literature and art, centered in perspectives of people of color.
We welcome participation and contributions from anyone interested in such works.
All Allies are always welcome!
- By showcasing the voices and work of writers and artists of color, our communities are invigorated by exposure to new, highly imaginative, creative cultural art via public readings, performances, festivals, conferences, and collaborations.
- By addressing professional development and the business needs of working writers and artists through workshops and retreats on topics such as: generating new creative work; finding funding; negotiating commissions, contracts, and budgets; applying to residencies; formatting work for submissions; marketing and publicity; and self-care and wellness…sustainable, resilient, culture-based art practices are supported.
