About Our Programming:
Charis Circle creates and co-sponsors programming in four primary project content areas: the From Margin to Center Literary Project, the Founding the Future of Feminism Project, the Strong Families, Whole Children Project, and the Urban Sustainability and Wellness Project. All of our programming is created with a commitment to sustainability via diverse and innovative funding sources, by nurturing partnerships across communities and geographies, and with an eye toward technical innovation which will create and support accessible feminist communities beyond our physical location.
From Margin to Center Literary Project (FMC)–Building on Charis Books and More’s thirty-seven year commitment to independent and marginalized voices, Charis Circle’s literary project seeks to expand existing notions of literature, test cultural and discipline-based boundaries and traditions, cultivate written experimentation, encourage discourse between schools of thought, and build audiences for live literary experiences. With a primary focus on diverse and marginalized voices, FMC is a cutting-edge literary project that works to encourage “a place at the table” for all.
Founding the Future of Feminism Project (FFF)–works to build a sustainable and dynamic feminist movement facilitating regional networking and program development that challenges and seeks to dismantle all forms of oppression through an intersectional feminist lens. FFF organizes around a philosophy of wholeness, believing that all people have a right to be self-determining across the entire spectrum of their lives.
Strong Families, Whole Children Project–is dedicated to nurturing the next generation of strong, healthy, and whole young people (and the people who love them) who are committed to gender justice beyond the binary.
Urban Sustainability and Wellness Project– is designed to introduce community members to resources and programs that promote and health, vital, and sustainable world which rejects the predominate ideology of scarcity and promotes mutuality and sufficiency beyond capitalist models.
Writing with Intent
This facilitated group is open to all writers of fiction and creative non-fiction who want a serious group to provide constructive criticism, motivational exercises, and interpersonal accountability to keep their writing on track. We will do monthly exercises and critiques with an eye towards individual improvement and the eventual goal of publication. Writers are encouraged to bring copies of their work to share for critique. The group meets the second Monday of each month from 6:30 – 8:30pm.
