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
10am–12:45pm | Stories that Breathe:
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.
