Call for Applications: Slingshot Writing Workshop

Slingshot Writing Workshop is a new organization that seeks to offer free writing workshops for people of colour led by instructors of colour. It seeks to provide tools to further hone writing skills and build community at the same time. Our first event is a three day writing workshop weekend where nine IBPOC writers will be led through two writing workshops led by Ins Choi and Tetsuro Shigematsu.

These workshops will provide hands-on skills to further hone the craft of writing, answer some questions, and give examples from real world experience.


Seeking nine early-career IBPOC writers to participate in this free on-line writing workshop weekend.

These workshops are intended for participants who identify as professional, early-career or late bloomer IBPOC writers and we welcome those who also identify as LGBTQ2IA+, d/Deaf, disabled, MAD, neurodiverse/neurodivergent communities to apply. Attendance at all the workshops is required as the material will be cumulative. 

Application Deadline: Friday, September 3rd at 11:59 PM PST.
