About this Event

Diverse Inspirations: Mini Write-in for BIPOC Writers

Join Samantha (Sam) Jones for a mini-retreat to discuss the diverse writers that inspire us, and create some works of our own. This intimate session will include a roundtable where each participant will share a piece of writing by an author/poet who inspires them, a write-in session with writing prompts, and an opportunity (optional) to share and discuss the pieces that we create. All styles of writing are welcome!

What to bring:

Notebook and pen or laptop/technology to write with

Short piece of writing (or an excerpt from a longer work) by a BIPOC writer who inspires you. Aim for something that takes five minutes or less to read. You will share it with the group along with a few words on why or how it is inspiring or why it is important to you.

Pre-work:

Select a piece by an inspiring writer that you would like to share with the group and prepare a short explanation of the work and why you find it inspiring. More detailed instructions about this activity will be provided after registration. The pre-work is not intended to be time consuming!

Samantha Jones (she/her) lives and writes in Calgary, Canada on Treaty 7 territory. Her poetry recently appeared in The Anti-Languorous Project, Blanket Sea, CV2, Grain, Mixed Mag, New Forum, Parentheses Journal, Room, and The /tƐmz/ Review. Samantha's writing has also been anthologized in Tap, Press, Read (Loft on EIGHTH) and March 2020: A COVID-19 Anthology (The /tƐmz/ Review and 845 Press). She is of mixed Black Canadian and European settler descent. Find her on Twitter: @jones_yyc.
