In Conversation with NWS Members: How writing keeps us connected

17 June @ 18:30 - 20:30

About this Event

NWS introduces a new series of workshops, “In Conversation with NWS Members” where we invite members of our talented cohort of writers to talk about their writing style, process, and works-in-progress!

In June, we’ll be joined by development editor and co-founder of Global Wordsmiths Victoria Villasenor for a talk focussed on writing and how it keeps us connected.

Words, and the arts overall, serve to connect us. Throughout the pandemic, we’ve seen writing/book groups that are lifelines for people without connection. Global Wordsmiths has been awarded grant money from the Arts Council to develop a connection between various art groups, and create something bigger than us as individuals or small groups. Victoria will spend time talking about how writing, and books, keep us connected and grounded when everything feels out of control.

About Victoria Villasenor

Victoria Villasenor is a long time editor with a publishing house in New York, runs her writing consultancy with her wife and fellow author, and is the author of seven books featuring LGBTQ characters. She leads writing retreats, writing workshops, and does community writing projects with marginalized groups.
