Oñgwaga•ä’ Writer’s Workshop



The Oñgwaga•ä’ Writer‘s Workshop is a unique multi-tiered workshop designed to spotlight, harness, and advance the work of Indigenous writers in New York state and beyond. The workshop was designed by children’s book writer Michelle Cronin, a Cornell University alum and member of Onondaga Nation, in collaboration with the Center for Cultural Humility. This free virtual workshop is supported through collaborations with established writers and publishing presses.

The Oñgwaga•ä’ Writer‘s Workshop focuses on two things: 1) exposing the general public to the rich, intricate works of indigenous writers; and 2) helping indigenous writers cultivate the skills and resources needed to enhance and disseminate their work. The workshop includes six weeks of dynamic tailored instruction and workshopping from skilled, passionate professionals on the complex developmental aspects of literature and storytelling.
