Call for proposal: The Dominican Writers Conference 2020
It gives us great pleasure to announce “¡Atrévete! Daring to Write! as the theme for the second annual Dominican Writers Conference 2020” The forthcoming conference will be held at The City College of New York on May 2nd & 3rd, 2020. Keynote Speaker to TBA.

Writing has always been a revolutionary act. It has been the tool writers have armed themselves with to document and preserve our stories. This year’s conference honors those who are brave enough to take pen to page against anything that threatens us, while at the same time, honoring who we are and the stories that are ours to tell. Being a writer que se atreve a escribir means we are unapologetically giving voice to our communities and we are creating spaces where we all feel represented as Dominicans. The stories we write merge two worlds, the joy, and life en la isla Quisqueya and the concrete jungles outside of it. ¡Somos ATREVID@S!

The Dominican Writers Conference was created by a group of Dominican women writers in New York who firmly believe that our stories must be told by us. Our goal is to offer emerging/established Dominican writers and the communities that support us with an event that not only celebrates the important works coming out of the diaspora but also serves to offer opportunities for more Dominican writers to learn how they can break into publishing.
