Issue 3 of Red Umbrella Project’s Prose & Lore: Memoir Stories About Sex Work will debut on January 21, 2014. It will be our biggest issue yet, with more than 30 stories - and for the first time, we’re featuring stories by writers from outside of our NYC-based programs.
You can get print and digital subscriptions here or enter our Goodreads giveaway for a chance at winning one of four copies of the book.
Aaaand, we’ll be launching applications for the spring cycle of our memoir workshop in NYC as well as pitches for issue 4 here on January 6th.
What do you do to feel more safe with clients?
How do handle transphobic violence?
What activity helps you feel calm and safe after work?
Red Umbrella Project wants to know how you practice self-care and keep yourselves safe! On Tuesday, December 10th from 7pm-8:30pm at the Brooklyn Community Pride Center, Red UP and Center for Anti-Violence Education are putting on an Anti-Violence and Resilience Training & Community Gathering. You can learn more about the event on our Facebook page.
While we are pleased to announce that this curriculum was created with the help of people currently or formerly in the sex trades, we believe even our perspectives as a peer led group cannot cover the wide array of experiences of people in the sex trades. That is why we are asking for your help: submit your safety and self-care tips either to our Tumblr, Facebook, or email@example.com and we will include them in the workshop or the free self-care packages given to each participant.
