(Jennifer Kwon Dobbs Kwon Dobbs, Taiyon Coleman, Lisa Lewis, Aimee Parkison, Sagirah Shahid) Room 23, Tampa Convention Center, First Floor, Friday, March 9th, 10:30-11:45 AM. With the rise of creative writing spaces centering women/writers of color, are gender, race, and class finished conversations? This panel brings together diverse women writers to ask how these social forces continue to shape women's experiences of creative writing from learning in or teaching the workshop to publishing work to administering a program. Where are we today with regard to positions of power and our access to publication? The panelists will share visions and strategies for equity.
