DVAN is excited to host workshops and craft talks to further support writers and creative members of our community to learn, work, and create alongside established diasporic Vietnamese artists in a collaborative setting. Our offerings are special in that they focus on aspects of creative craft and profession in ways that are particularly resonant and relevant to SE Asian and Vietnamese writers and creatives. Writing workshops and craft talks are open to the general public. Sign up on the DVAN e-newsletter list to receive news of occasional special offers and free or deeply discounted tuition rates for DVAN members.

If you are a writer-educator interested in presenting a craft talk or facilitating a workshop, we also would love to hear from you. Please email course proposals and resumes to us.
