Explore the intersections of identity and selfhood through this writing workshop for trans and gender nonconforming Jews. Whether you’re published or not, write for yourself, or want to try creative writing out, this is a space for all levels!
We’ll reflect on Jewish thought and tradition through both individual and collaborative writing over the course of 2 hours.
Keshet is excited to invite Bay Area Trans Writers Workshop (BATWW) organizer Julian Shendelman to facilitate literary exercises centered on trans Jewish experiences.
Light refreshments provided. Some back-up paper and writing instruments will be available.
Julian Shendelman has a weird looking dog (part fawn, part fruit bat) and a nice Jewish boyfriend. A 10 year resident of Oakland, Julian splits his time between his boring desk job, organizing the Bay Area Trans Writers Workshop, and making moody zines. Julian identifies as “genre-fluid”– He was a 2016 pushcart nominated poet for his piece in Bat City Review, and won a literary death match with a true story about Queer Punk Cannibalism. His first published chapbook, “Dead Dad Club,” was released by Nomadic Press in March of this year.
