CANCELED – BIPOC Reading Series

March 25, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Theme: “Family”
Olufunke Grace Bankole

Armin Tolentino
Hosted by Jessica Meza-Torres

The BIPOC Reading Series at Literary Arts grew out of writing workshop and Delve participants requests to share their work in a BIPOC-centered space. We conducted a survey to see if there was larger support and interest in this series. The survey went to 213 writers who had either applied for our Writer of Color fellowship, or attended a workshop for Writers of Color at Literary Arts.

Although open to the public, this reading series is intended to prioritize the safety, creativity, and stories of Black people, Indigenous people, and People of Color.

We hope this series can evolve into whatever shape its participants see fit-be it a space for networking, for community discussions, or as a casual open mic. Forms asking for participant feedback will be available at the event.
In May 2020, the series will partner with Ooligan Press for the 3rd annual Writer of Color showcase, and Olufunke Grace Bankole will host.
