An Evening with the Women of Color Writers Workshop
Featuring authors Elishia Peterson, Candace Williams, and others TBA
Hosted by founder Bisi Ideraabdullah
Refreshments reception to follow
In 1999, writer and activist Bisi Ideraabdullah created the Women of Color Writers (WOC) Workshop in a storefront on Fifth Avenue in South Brooklyn. The WOC Writers Community is now a global collective of women writers. WOC Writers promotes the rights of women of color to be seen and heard through their literary voices. It also creates opportunities for publication and performance of their work and supports women writers in building their confidence and writing skills. Greenlight is honored to offer a performance space for WOC Writers who will share their recent work, with a lineup featuring Elishia Peterson, Candace Williams, and other accomplished Women of Color.
