A Reading Series Celebrating Virginia Women, Woman-Identifying, Genderfluid, Genderqueer, & Nonbinary-Identifying Writers
Womxn at Red Door 104: Words and Art, a new reading series created to celebrate Virginia womxn writers, is a partnership between Creative Writing at Longwood University and Red Door 104, a unique gallery and art learning center owned and operated by the tireless and talented Audrey Sullivan, in historic downtown Farmville,Virginia.
The series will consist of two events annually:
- A reading and reception in April 2020, with two featured readers and five cameo readers.
- All selected readers will then also have the unique and exciting experience of having visual art created by central Virginia artists in response to their submitted work. This art will be revealed in a second event, an art opening at Red Door 104 the following October.
The first Womxn at Red Door 104 reading will take place from 2-4 pm on Saturday, April 4, 2020. The art opening will take place in October 2020, date tba.
Submissions open 1 July 2019. Submit writing samples and a 50-75 word bio via Submittable. Submissions are limited to current Virginia residents.

Make art about discovering hidden strengths within, about discovering you are stronger than you thought, about a specific time you called upon strength you didn’t know you had.
