Halo-Halo Café: A Mini-Writing Retreat for A/PI Writers

Apply for Scholarship
  • $85.00 Non-Member
  • $75.00 Member

Class Description

Do you just want to be in fellowship with other Asian and Asian-American and Pacific Islander writers to write about what is important to you today? Bring your halo-halo, boba, matcha or kalamansi juice and join Halo-Halo Cafe: a virtual space specifically dedicated to Asian and Pacific-Islander-identified writers! This will be an affinity group which allows you the freedom to come as you are and bring whatever projects you're working on, AND a space to receive prompts and expert guidance from Aimee Suzara, to write something new! This provides a safe and empowering space. Suzara offers a multi-week writting group by the same name, and this is a chance to show up with little commitment but 3 hours, a pen and paper, and yourselves.

Scholarships Format/Location

Thanks to the excellent literary citizenship of our donors, scholarships are available for all GrubStreet classes. To apply, click the gray "APPLY FOR SCHOLARSHIP" button. In order to be considered for a scholarship, you must complete your application at least one week before the start date of a class. Please await our scholarship committee's decision before registering for the class. We cannot hold spots in classes, so the sooner you apply, the better. Scholarships cannot be applied retroactively.

This class will take place using Zoom videoconferencing. About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting!

Zoom Participation:

Students are not required to turn their camera on, but are encouraged to participate any way they feel comfortable through functions such as the live chat, emoji reactions, and unmuting the microphone. Learn more about using Zoom here.

Zoom Accessibility:

We ask that instructors enable closed captioning and send a transcript of the session after class. You can also enable closed captioning at any time during the meeting. If your instructor forgets to send the transcript, just send ’em an email!
