Announcement: Feminina Sube Workshops on Isla Mujeres, Mexico: 2018
Jan. 12-15. Memoir writing and more…to wherever the energy takes you.
We have offered this channel for creative writing for three consecutive years on Isla now, leading to the creation of an annual literary publication, IxChel Press, in which we publish the work of all participants. Women write retrospective vignettes taking the long view about significant moments in their past, short fiction in which goddesses return to the streets or the authors emerge into Heaven with many breasts…the vehicle and platform is yours. We gather, take our assignments to write, and are free to explore the island’s gifts be it through scuba diving or swimming or sunbathing during the day. This year virtual participation will also be offered in the evenings, where we read what we write and generate the assignments for the next day.
Feb. 12-15. Sheela na gig: The Dark Goddess of Sacred Power.
A Three Day Workshop on Her History and Image-making. Text by Star Goode. Both on-island and virtual participation is possible for this offering too.
Mar. 12-15. The Age of Kali. We Are Rising?
How, Why and Where is Female Energy Emerging? Nation by Nation? Globally? How do we feel this in our love, lives? Communities, neighborhoods? Politics? The Media? Predictions for the future? What do we see in the social landscape? Talk about this tremendous phenomenon astrologically. Work on the mosaic wrapping around three walks inside Feminina Sube, Kali Emerging. Create your own work musically in dance, art, writing in any genre, theater in the streets, music.
And please contact us for work exchange arrangements or sliding scale rates.
Send application two weeks in advance to our facebook page, feminina sube/isla mujeres/community art project, as a private message. Indicate name, which workshop(s) you are applying for, on island or virtual, why you want to come, what media you want to work in and why, what experience you can bring, and how you feel that what you will be doing with us will be helping to make the world a better place.

From the beginning, myths have told of women who have lived apart from men?the Sirens who sang on the Aegean rocks, the Amazons of the Brazilian jungle, the self-reproducing women on islands in Polynesia, to name only a few. What we are doing is creating a Red Tent community on Isla Mujeres, an island off the coast of Cancun, named so because four statues of women were found on the South Point when Spanish explorers first came here.

Femspec is pleased to announce that our newest issue (18.1) is now available to order.
