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.
Our programs build skills and confidence, provide performance and publication opportunities and create community across race, class and age. It's a diverse community where ordinary people can work alongside activists, healers, educators, college deans, and poets laureate.
