Event Description

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 | Festival Talks:

@ the Asian American Writers’ Workshop
110-112 West 27th Street, 6th Floor (btwn 6th and 7th Aves)


10am–12:45pm | Stories that Breathe:
Finding the Story that You Were Meant to Tell

Our stories unfold as we live them. Self-reflection through writing is a healing, cathartic process, and the sharing of personal experiences is often the inspiration for others’ transformation. In this memoir writing workshop led by actor and writer, Nadia Manzoor (Burq Off!Shugs & Fats), we will explore how and why we tell our stories. Through improvisation, movement exercises, and creative writing, we will investigate our inner process and how it can crystallize into a story that can be shared with the world.
Limited spaces available, advance sign-up required. For more details on the workshop and to sign up, click here.
Suggested donation: $5


All events are open to the public. For descriptions of events, check out the event on our website.
