60% of Bay Area are people of color, yet our thoughts and experiences remain underrepresented in the literary arts. We build multicultural understanding by supporting writers & artists of color through

• affordable creative writing workshops open to writers at any level in any genre.
   No writing experience necessary

• publishing and distributing anthologies of prose, poetry and artwork

• producing and presenting readings and creative showcases.
