--  "We aim to disintegrate and recapture the dangerous politics of the workshop space. We emphasize the visibility of writers who are often left on the fringes and firmly believe that all voices should be prioritized equally within the workshop space, not just those that are the loudest or most vocal. Our mentors serve as role models to their students not just in the writing world, but in other aspects of life as well. Through conversation and collaboration with existing and crucial work in the community, we hope to offer a safe haven of like-minded individuals where students can grow as writers, persons, and more."
