“It was only just recently that I began to love her, after devouring Carver’s book. Beginning to love Yoko Ono is a dangerous experience, because then you wonder: If Yoko Ono was something more than the woman who broke up the Beatles, then what other lies have I been told?”

Xiwangmu, one of the most powerful goddesses in the Chinese pantheon, started out as a mountain demon who wreaked cataclysmic havoc before settling down into heavenly rule. What can her myth teach us about writing into our wilderness years as womxn of the Asian diaspora? Come ready to read, discuss, write, and revel in stories about fighting, drinking, disrupting, or screwing our way into self-creation. You’ll leave with new material and the readiness to take up space in any room. This class includes a lunch break.

This class is intended for writers of (a) East, Middle East, South, and Southeast Asian and Pacific Islander heritage, and (b) underrepresented genders including cis women, trans women, trans men, non-binary people and those who are otherwise marginalized.

Register HERE.
