ACPA Writer's Retreat

Friday, 9 July 2021 - 12:00pm to Friday, 30 July 2021 - 5:00pm
Join ACPA and key leaders for a virtual retreat that will center the Strategic Imperative for Racial Justice and Decolonization. The retreat will offer participants opportunities for writing in community, individual and group coaching, and support in the writing and publication processes. This retreat grows out of the understanding that writing is a power-laden activity that has been made more difficult by racist and settler colonial schooling, but is also a tool for liberatory knowledge creation, knowledge sharing, and practice. Facilitators have experience leading writing retreats, writing groups, and writing workshops, as well as writing and publishing themselves.
