A confluence is the place where two rivers meet. It is a place of not only great energy but great power and creativity. Located at one of the great confluences, the Twin Cities occupy this place called Bdote – “where two waters come together” – that is sacred to the Dakota people.

The Octavia E. Butler Literary Society invites you to join us virtually at this sacred place of power and creativity for the third biennial conference where we will feature work honoring Butler.

There is no fee to attend the conference. However, you must register in order to receive a link on the day of the event. Register now
