2018 Window of Opportunity Grant – $1,450

Mai will attend a writing workshop taught by activist, teacher and writer Sarah Schulman at the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center (FAWC) in July. The workshop, titled Witness, Express, and Represent is for writers "working on witnessing our extraordinary time, expressing the experience of living now in the context of others." By attending this workshop during FAWC's Social Justice Week, Mai will connect with other writers who are deeply engaged in activist work, receive direct critical feedback on works-in-progress, and possibly find new readers to grow work that deals directly with gender and the trans experience.
