Young Authors Collective—Rainbow

$520.00 Members
$520.00 Non-members

The Young Authors Collective (YAC) is where teen writers ages 14-18 meet their people and share their words. YAC provides an inclusive, welcoming space to create long-lasting friendships, connect with a larger literary community, and develop your writing skills. Members of YAC build their craft by workshopping (giving and receiving feedback) their writing; engaging in interactive skill-building sessions; and learning how to “read as a writer.”

YAC – Rainbow meets via Zoom each Tuesday from 4-6PM Mountain. As part of YAC – Rainbow we’ll explore examples by our elder “queeroes” and “transcestors” to find inspiration for new works of our own. In fact, all examples in these sessions—such as short stories, novel or memoir excerpts, and writing prompts—will be from writers and artists who identify as queer and/or trans. Members can also expect to learn about LGBTQIAP+ authors whose voices have been historically marginalized or even silenced because of their multiple identities, such as being Black and queer. This is a safe, confidential, and brave space where you can share your words without feeling like you have to explain your identities.
