Voices of Our Nations Arts

December 21, 2021

VONA (Voices of Our Nations Arts Foundation) is the only multi-genre workshop for writers of color. VONA centers and honors the traditions and aesthetics of writers of color to provide a space for their work and learning. Since its inception, VONA has facilitated increased access to writing programs, inviting writers from different backgrounds and experiences to talk about who they are as writers of color and how that influences the stories they choose to tell.┬áVONA alumni teach in both academic programs and community workshops, many coming home to teach as VONA faculty.”
