As a sanctuary for our collective imaginations, stories, and voices, there is nothing more important to the AAWW team than our community’s safety and well-being. Our commitment to our community is balanced with the practical realities of organizing multiple events of all sizes every month. With concerns about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic growing each day, we have been closely monitoring recommended protective measures from local, state, and federal public health officials, and in response, will be indefinitely suspending all live public programming, effective immediately. The AAWW space will also be closed to the public during this period.
It is the strength of our community that keeps us resilient and prepared to meet the challenge of this particular moment. We will continue to publish work online on The Margins and in the coming weeks, we will be exploring ways to host more online readings and conversations in lieu of live public events. Stay tuned for what I hope will be an early spring season that is as creative as it is innovative.
We are so grateful for your continued support, and we can’t wait to welcome you back to the Workshop later this spring.
Sending light and love to you and yours.
