After fifteen years, we’re rooting down in the best borough ever.
It’s our 15th anniversary, and this summer NY Writers Coalition (NYWC) will host its first ever Queens-based Workshop Leader Training (July 2017), and we want writers and activists like YOU to lead the charge in the best borough ever: Queens! Whether you live in Astoria, Hollis, Jamaica, or all the way in Howard Beach, your passion to build community via creative writing is what we’re after.
Interested? Applications open May 1. But before you submit that application, we hope you’ll take a moment to learn more about the position, our workshop method, and NYWC at this special info session at QED. Meet NYWC staff and other artists interested in training (and writing!) this summer. This Q&A is open to artists of all backgrounds, mediums, and experiences (particularly writers and visual and performing artists) who are interested in playing an active role in a community of writers and activists. Join us, won’t you?
