Women/Trans/Femme Writers Gathering

The mission of streets.mn  is to expand and enhance the conversation about transportation and land use through research and informed commentary. There are many ways to think about “expanding” and “enhancing,” from a wide-variety of blog posts to events to podcasts to the people who write the posts. streets.mn wants writers with different backgrounds, interests, and experiences so that our conversation reflects the places and communities in which we live. We want to be a welcoming place where people feel their voices are valued.

Are you a woman/trans/femme (WTF) identified person who reads streets.mn and has an idea for a post, but need a nudge to get it out there? Do you read the comments and feel like you could turn your last one into a post? Do you write often and have experience to share? Need some time or space to write? Want someone to look over a potential post and give you feedback? Please join us for the first WTF Writers Gathering!

Event Brite registration

This is a casual event at my house in Saint Paul. Children welcome. I have kids and our trampoline will keep them busy. We’ll have tacos (vegetarian and gluten-free options), followed by time to write, ask questions, get feedback on posts. Bring your laptop if you plan on writing. The event is free. Feel free to bring a beverage or dessert to share or donate to streets.mn to help cover the cost of the tacos, but you are welcome if you don’t.

You could be sitting on this porch, writing a streets.mn post.
