Dismantle: An Anthology of Writing from the VONA/Voices Writing Workshop (Paperback)
Voices of Our Nation Arts Foundation (VONA) was founded by Elmaz Abinader, Junot Diaz, Victor Diaz and Diem Jones in 1999. Each envisioned an arts organization that could change the landscape for writers of color by supporting individual writer growth, creating a platform for community engagement and providing a workshop and mentor focus to expand writing opportunities. Over 2,000 writers from around the globe have participated in VONA. Dismantle is an anthology of creative work from VONA alum and its award-winning teachers.
