Women and nonbinary people of color have always needed our own spaces to reflect, to share, to heal, and to lift each other up. Let's turn inward through our writing, and let's turn to each other to connect, and together let's hold space for and process all we're carrying and all we're longing for. This affinity circle is by and for women and nonbinary people of color, with only writers of color on the page and in the room.

Shana Brodnax (she/her) started participating in writing circles in 2018, and found them such a powerful experience that she went through the Conscious Feminine Leadership Academy in 2019 to become a facilitator herself.  She has been a writer since she was a little girl, but before WWf(a)C writing circles would never have said so.  Now she can stand on the sacred ground that “a writer is a woman who writes,” and is honored to hold space for other women to discover this too.  She often says “circles are magic!”  She also incorporates them into her leadership development work as a coach and consultant, doing writing circles with her clients across the country, and holds regular virtual circles specifically for Black women and women of color.   She has a B.A. in African-American Studies and Political Science from Indiana University Bloomington, a M.S. in Nonprofit Management from the New School in New York, and now lives in Jacksonville, Florida with her husband Bear.
