We are pleased to announce that our founders will be collaborating with Clarion West Writers Workshop to teach a combined panel & workshop titled, “Negritude in the 6th Dimension: An Afrofuturist Craft Excursion.” The panelshop will explore the concept of time through a Black Indigenous lens, particularly addressing Black time travel, healing and the a-linearity of time.

There aren’t enough spaces like this. It is super beautiful to see it. I think back to myself in the MFA, and even post-MFA, it would have been dope to be in a community like this and to know that you are not so alone.- Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah, NYT Bestselling Author of Friday Black
Voodoonauts Summer Workshop is the MFA I deserve. This is what an MFA is supposed to look like. When institutions care about their students. If schools really really cared about teaching creative people to thrive and be creative. This [Voodoonauts] is what that looks like- Lizz Del Mar Florival on the Creatively Exposed podcast
The inspiring beginning of a necessary new space.- Class of 2020
Voodoonauts is a great example of what Afrofuturtists do best: create the future they want to see. Done over two days on Zoom, the instructors organized a concise, expansive, and informational conference for writers at the intersections of Blackness, science fiction, and fantasy. With participants scattered across Africa and North America, language makers shared artistic space regardless of genre, all connected by imagination, solidarity, and curiosity.- Class of 2020
