WELCOME to VONA
The Voices of Our Nations Arts Foundation
We are the workshop for Writers-of-Color
JOIN US AT LITERARY ARTS PORTLAND FOR THE VONA 20TH BIRTHDAY PARTY READING ON MARCH 29, 7 PM
HAPPY TWENTIETH BIRTHDAY, VONA!
Since 1999, VONA has been offering a variety of workshops for writers of color. This year, we celebrate by having workshops around the country. Our famous and inspiring faculty will be offering one or two-day workshops, offering more opportunities to more writers. Stay tuned for the roll-out in January. Happy Birthday to all of us!
Democratizing poetic knowledge and craft. Creating and holding a freeing, nurturing and supportive space for us to be able to take risks as people and as writers. Giving us opportunities to practice material generation and radical revision. Challenging us to think beyond what’s already on the page, to think radically about possibility and potential.
