About Fuel for Fire

The Fuel for Fire panels will discuss the systemic barriers encountered by writers of colour, and approaches to navigating the challenges faced in writing, editing, publishing, funding, securing residencies and jobs, and building community. We understand that this is not a new conversation for many artists of colour, but we hope that the ideas and energies generated from this event will be.
