We believe in the power of literary community to support diverse writers to share the stories only they can tell.
Our mission is to support the career development of writers with lived experiences, identities, and backgrounds that are underrepresented in publishing and the literary ecosystem.
We believe that mainstream publishing underrepresents diverse lived experiences, and that we have a role to play in dismantling white supremacist culture and advancing equity and justice by supporting writers from marginalized communities to reach a wider audience.
We understand that a writer’s success publishing and promoting their work often depends on access to career support that isn’t equally accessible to all, and that emerging writers–especially those from marginalized communities–need greater access to resources that will support their professional development.
We value literary community in which writers learn from each other’s experiences, support each other’s growth, and celebrate each other’s successes.
