The first edition of the Casa Snowapple Mx Writers Residency in Mexico will be held 16-22 January. At this first gathering of women writers, we propose a common field for experimentation, reflection and creation, around the theme cyborg experiments – or how to create space for the new.
For the coming year the Snowapple Collective received funding to support women artists in an attempt to experiment with new creative forms and modes of expression. With this grant, we aim to facilitate a seven-day artistic laboratory at Casa Snowapple Mx. The group will consist of upcoming and established writers; uniting five Mexican and five international guests. The program offers literary workshops and field trips into Mexico City, and each participant will be assigned an individual space to retreat and to write. Participants will also be given the opportunity to present their work at Casa Snowapple Mx’s closing night public event.
