Open Moon 문: Writing Group for Asian and Asian American Writers

No Longer Enrolling

  • $170.00 Non-Member
  • $150.00 Member

Class Description

In Korean, "문" can mean both "text" (文) and "door." Half writing-group, half open-mic, Open Moon is an ungated space for Asian and Asian-American writers, of all levels, writing in any genre, where we can share our experiences, share our work, and cheer each other on. Each week, we will open with a conversation, in which we check in with each other, talk about our lives and our writing, and share our excitements–new projects, new books we've read, stories in the news that grabbed our interest. Then we'll write together: each member can choose to share a prompt. Finally, we'll end with a thirty-minute open mic, during which you can choose to share your work! We're living in troubling times–let's make space for each other. Build community. Network with other Asian/Asian-American writers. Keep our doors open.

In order to be considered for a scholarship, you must complete your application at least one week before the start date of a class.
