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 alisha2709@gmail.com as the maximum capacity for this workshop is 15 people. Please bring your lunch, as only light snacks and beverages will be provided.
