We are overjoyed to organize the 6th Annual Sankofa Sisterhood Writers Retreat to be held this year in Connecticut.
This year’s theme is:
May 22 – May 25, 2020
It is said that in order to manifest, a few things must be in place. Among these things are clarity of what we want, trust in the process, and clearing our resistance.
Magic as a verb is to move, change, or create by.
It is no wonder then why we need magic to manifest.
Sankofa is that space and place.
The Sankofa Sisterhood Writers Retreat is a 4 days / 3 nights retreat for women of color writers gives you the opportunity to spend time with your craft in the company of other writers. It is the perfect retreat for the writer to work in a supportive environment that feeds the spirit, mind, and body. Sankofa is also a place of healing. It lends itself to stillness and time with self for reflection. It forces you to sit without the outside distractions of everyday responsibilities and distractions.
You will have the opportunity to work alone, one-on-one, and in a group to exercise your craft, improve your writing, and gather new tools to take with you as you continue the work of writing your stories. Sankofa always has a few surprises that may include Reiki, tarot card readings, special guests invites.
The Sankofa Sisterhood Writers Retreat is a safe space for women of color writers where we put our writing and ourselves first. Put yourself first and register. Spaces are limited.

Women of Color.
