Applications are now open for Cave Canem’s fall 2018 workshops! Since 1999, these free and low-cost community-based workshops for Black writers and writers of color have offered rigorous instruction and rare opportunities to work with accomplished poets.

This season’s two workshop offerings are Procedures, Discomforts and Retellings with LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs, wherein participants will discuss what provokes/inspires them to write; and Time Keeping and Time Travel with Anastacia-Reneé, wherein participants will build poems that restructure and reimagine “form.”

LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs is an interdisciplinary artist and author of TwERK (Belladonna, 2013). Her work has been featured at the Brooklyn Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, and the 56th Venice Biennale.  Anastacia-Reneé is the author of five books, most recently, Forget It (Black Radish Books, 2017). She is a recipient of the 2017 Artist of the Year Award, and writing fellowships from Cave Canem, Hedgebrook and VONA, among others.

Workshops are limited to an enrollment of 15 participants and are open to Black poets and poets of color in the NYC area. Applications are accepted through August 12, 2018 at 11:59 pm via Submittable. Visit the workshops page for details.
