This year’s theme is “Being Enough: Resistance, Vulnerability, Wholeness, and Magic.” We especially welcome workshops that center Blackness, Indigeniety, disability, and transness/gender nonconformity. We are also actively seeking workshops that allow participants to learn and/or practice concrete skills. Some examples may include (but are not limited to):

  • Dancing
  • Movement and embodiment
  • Writing
  • Peer/community counseling
  • Herbal medicine
  • Emergency first aid
  • Self-defense
  • Applying makeup
  • Self and community care

We look forward to reading your amazing submissions!
