Specifically created for woman-identified, non-binary and genderqueer writers, this spectacular event gives each participant her/their own writing space in addition to three meals and breakout sessions ranging from craft talks on fiction (Elizabeth Stark), non-fiction (Christine Hyung-Oak Lee), and poetry (Maw Shein Win) to a yoga class (taught by MRP’s Janine Kovac). The afternoon offers a publishing panel with Brooke Warner, Peg Alford Pursell, Brenda Knight, and that dynamic duo that makes up Moxie Road Productions, Janine and Tarja! The evening concludes with a keynote from Elizabeth Rosner and book sales courtesy of Orinda Books.
