We are against hate which targets continually marginalized people, no matter if they are Asian, Asian-American, Pacific Islanders, Black, Indigenous, people of color, and LGBTQ+ identifying. We support movements for reform, protest, and equality. A collection of resources and organizations working toward these efforts, and those which offer support, can be found here.

We will continue to amplify marginalized voices, and welcome all, their ideas, their events, and their words. Our words here are not enough, but we wanted to say we support you and will continue to do so through our actions.

An additional list of support and relief funds can be found here.

BIPOC Revision Workshop

August 30 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

This affinity space for BIPOC writers will support the transformation of your early drafts into new iterations and more polished pieces. How do we revise our writing in ways that feel energized and nimble? How do we identify writing habits that aren’t serving us and gather inspiration from fellow writers? What can supportive feedback offer to our word choice, sentences, and overall structure of our piece? How can we be intentional about the writing moves we’re making for clarity, engagement, and authentic voice? This seasonal workshop is an affinity space for BIPOC writers to level up their writing in a supportive environment. We will refine our lens for spotting more of what we want from style, craft, structure, and content through an exploration of our fellow writers’ creations and a new perspective on our own. Writers should bring a piece of writing no longer than 2-3 pages of prose or poetry.
