Foley Square.  New York, NY.  In 1741, in response to what was believed to be a plot to burn down New York City, 34 people were executed at what is now called, Foley Square.   A 1744 account of the event was titled, “A Journal of the Proceedings in the Detection of the Conspiracy Formed by Some White People, in Conjunction with Negro and Other Slaves for Burning the City of New-York in America.”  Over time, the events were remembered more simply, if at all, as “The Great Negro Plot.”  

Nearly every story you’ve ever read about a trans woman was written by a cis person.

This summer, twenty-six trans women writers will gather in New York City, the publishing and literary capital of North America, with two world-class instructors, to study, and to hone our craft.

Please donate today to help us realize this unique creative opportunity. Your donations go directly to paying for tuition, travel, and accommodation costs for participants who otherwise could not afford to attend.
