In Between & Enough:
A Workshop Exploring Multiracial Identity
The Ace Hotel New York Boardroom
20 W. 29th St
New York, NY 10001
Saturday, February 16th
2:00 PM – 5:00 PM
This Saturday afternoon event will focus on exploring the multiplicity and complexity of multiracial identities, while fostering community and kinship. Those with mixed race backgrounds are often made to feel as if they are simultaneously in between identities and not enough of either one, and we will seek to create a space where they can hear each other, be heard by each other, and feel valued, valid, and enough. Thank you to The Ace Hotel New York for their support of this event!
The workshop will be led by Alexandra Kleeman, author of You Too Can Have a Body Like Mine and Intimations. The afternoon will include generative writing, close reading exercises of published work, an intimate salon, and a space for open discussion.
The cost for this workshop is $75, and there is a scholarship available. This class is open to all writers of color who identify as mixed race.
space is limited. Register Here!
