CUE presents the Sandbox Sessions: a monthly drop-in for new-generation writers who live & work on the margins. Facilitated by Whitney French, with mentors, Cherie Dimaline, and Sheniz Janmohamed.

We intend to hold space for writers who experience marginalization, and create a unique literary community where those who encounter systemic barriers are able to:

– Connect with other writers (emerging and professional)
– Experiment with new writing techniques and styles
– Receive feedback on your work
– Learn about publishing, and a career in writing
– Read, share, or write on your own

Drop-in sessions are informal and organic – anything goes!

Bring your pens, notebooks, laptops, and stories to share.
