SCBWI member and friend Alisha Johnson has scheduled a writer’s meetup in the Lower 9. If you are interested in an opportunity to gather in a beautiful New Orleans space for individual writing and community sharing, friends at Sankofa Community Development Corporation have opened their doors to fellow kidlit writers on Sat., Nov. 9 @ 10 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Sankofa creates incredibly beautiful spaces throughout the Lower 9, in the form of mobile farmers markets and fresh food hubs, as well as a new wetlands park. They do so much more, including community health and education.
Please join Alisha at Sankofa’s central administrative office, 5200 Dauphine Street, on Sat., Nov. 9th from 10:00 am – 1:30 pm, for a brief time of reading and writing in community. Alisha will start and end with a circle, with lots of time for individual writing and optional sharing. There is NO COST, but you must RSVP to Alisha Johnson at as the maximum capacity for this workshop is 15 people. Please bring your lunch, as only light snacks and beverages will be provided.
