2017 events included:
We held an epic post-inauguration event, in collaboration with David Rocklin’s Roar Shack Live Writes, to come together as a community and share contributions from our “Wall of Resistance” issue, on Jan. 22, 2017, at Clifton’s. Readers: Dana Johnson, Samantha Dunn, Chris Morris, Robin Rinaldi, Rich Ferguson, Désirée Zamorano, Lauren Eggert-Crowe, Daniel Antonio Barron, Eirene Donohue, Haneen Oriqat, Erica Blumfield, John Balma and Paradigm.
We offer writing classes led by our contributors and editors.
Our first series of workshops were given by acclaimed author Kerry Neville and by AFLW’s creative nonfiction editor, Marnie Goodfriend. Class sizes were limited to 15 students and rates varied per class size and financial need. The classes focused on nonfiction personal essay, with emphasis on expanding on new and unfinished work for publication. We currently are developing workshops for Fall 2019.
