Emerge: New Mediums, New Voices
Just as pioneering South Asian women define emerging literary mediums, these mediums also define us. Inspired by these movements, the South Asian Women’s Creative Collective (SAWCC) presents Emerge: New Mediums, New Voices, a two-day interdisciplinary literary festival featuring screenwriters, memoirists and journalists who challenge the boundaries and contexts of the written word.
Saturday, April 4, 7-9:30pm | Keynote:
