Other Voices Returns

[ from an email forward; there isn't a current web address for the group.]

Other Countries is an organization dedicated to the development, dissemination and preservation of literature and other forms of cultural expression of GLBT people of African heritage. The collective began in 1986 as a writers workshop for Black gay men. Today, Other Countries renews its commitment to our community's artists and seeks to re-emerge as one of the pre-eminent organizations of its kind in the United States. The writing workshop that started 17 years ago and launched a series of powerful and unique publications and arts programs is back as a weekly peer workshop for black GLBT writers of all genders working in all genres.
