SUPPORTING WRITING & ART BY PEOPLE OF COLOR
Write Now! SF Bay builds multicultural community by reflecting the complex diversities among the Black, Brown, Indigenous and People of Color that comprise 60% of the Bay Area's population.
Since 2015, we have supported over 350 emerging and established BIPOC writers and artists. Their prose, poetry and artwork reflects the lived realities of people from all walks of life—educators, healers, activists, immigrants, LGBTQ, the formerly unhoused, and just plain folks with roots in Native America, Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and beyond. Above: standing, l-r: Kimi Sugioka, Karin Turner, Sandra Bass, Josiah Luis Alderete; seated, Tureeda Mikell, Shizue Seigel, Tony Aldarondo, and Dawn Angelicca Barcelona.
