In honor of Women’s History Month, we would like to recognize a new member of Spartanburg Gives, Writers Well Youth Fellowship. Writers Well Youth Fellowship is a series of FREE creative workshops and retreats for Black girls/femmes ages 14 – 19 interested in writing and performance. Founded and facilitated by Crystal Tenille Irby, it provides a belonging space for girls to move toward healing, expand their imagination, and gather tools to prepare them as a Black creatives and thought leaders within their communities. The topics of the retreats and workshops (in-person & virtual) cover health and wellness, writing prompts, editing, being confident in authenticity, and exploring the possibilities of their talents and potential. Girls/femmes at Writers Well are supported by experienced Black women/femmes creatives to help sharpen their writing skills and self-expression at NO COST. The ultimate goal is to build a creative community for Black girls that affirms their culture, nurtures connection, and provides tools to navigate through the world as an unapologetic Black girl.
Writer’s Well will be having a FREE virtual workshop on Saturday, April 9th from 12-2pm for 12-14 year old girls. Applications will open on April 4th and will be open until April 30th. Sign up for their email list to receive more information about the dates of the informational sessions about the workshops and for more details about Writer’s Well.
