“Time with fellow Native creatives helps sustain me along this author’s journey. I look forward to a weekend together to share our stories, write, create art, and talk practically about how we navigate the publishing industry.”
—Traci Sorell (Cherokee Nation)
About the Program
Immerse yourself in a supportive space that honors the diverse voices and storytelling traditions of indigenous peoples, fostering an environment that strengthens the bonds of community and heritage through the power of storytelling.
How It’s Structured
This is a lightly scheduled program with optional/informal group activities. You can bring multiple projects with you at all stages of their process so that you can decide what you’d like to work on while you are at the retreat.
In addition, Traci Sorell will lead evening discussions about creative work for children, the publishing industry, and ways to support one another in our community. (More hosts will be invited to share the evening discussions with Traci.)
You’ll be asked to provide a response to the following questions upon registration:
- What is/are the Native Nation(s) that you are affiliated?
- How is your work (past, present, and/or future) connected to and representative of your community?
There is limited availability to come 1 or 2 days early. If this works for you, please select accordingly at registration.
