I am going to repeat what I tweeted this morning, amidst my horror at the Japanese earthquake + tsunami….
This is the most amazing thing you can do for yourself as a writer of color: apply to Voices at VONA workshop!
I blogged a bit about writing conferences and residencies over at Writerland last year–and included VONA in my list of writing destinations. I don’t think I’d be the writer I am today, or the writer I will become, without VONA in my life.
Deadline is April 18, 2011.
And yes, I just sent in my application–so I know I just decreased my odds by sharing VONA with you, but that’s what VONA is about: sharing and community, so there you go!
As an important side note, please help the Japanese earthquake and tsunami survivors by donating money to the Red Cross, which has now earmarked a fund for the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.
