Take Up Your Pen

Maya’s Room: A Writing Circle for Black Women

October 30, 2018

During her long, dynamic writing career, Maya Angelou had a practice of going to a hotel room with her legal pad, pen and a dictionary to be alone with her thoughts and write. Influenced by Auntie Maya, we’re taking up time and space to foster our craft, in community, and we’d love to have you join us. We’ll meet twice monthly in Durham to encourage one another, be inspired and write. Together, we’ll go through The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron as a thread connecting our experiences during and between our gatherings. If you’re looking to connect with Black women writers and need some accountability to just sit down write, we hope you’ll join us in Maya’s Room.

Our first gathering will be Thursday, November 8th from 7p-8p at Cocoa Cinnamon Lakewood. For more information and to RSVP, please visit here: http://bit.ly/MayasRoomTBP

*We will use the book The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron as a guide. You can purchase here.
