WRITERS OF COLOR, FYI (stipend) by Bear Guerra

Via Asian American Writers Workshop:

“The Asian American Writers’ Workshop is proud to announce a new program that empowers writers of color to witness and write about mass incarceration.

The Witness Program began in the spring of 2019 and supports four creative writers, as part of our ongoing initiative A World Without Cages. Each participant will receive a stipend of $750, visit several sites of American incarceration and detention, meet with individuals who are directly affected, and take part in a pen-pal correspondence with an incarcerated writer. Their creative work will appear on The Margins, our online magazine of culture and ideas.

Through our literary programs, we aim to nurture writers, activists, and intellectuals so they can dream a new American mythology beyond segregation, immigrant exclusion, and Islamophobia. We’re thrilled that four accomplished writers with a deep commitment to social justice—Sarah Wang, CM Campbell, Roshan Abraham, and Christina Olivares—have joined us in this effort.”
