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.

For details regarding specific events please contact the organizers or venues. If you are an organizer or venue and would like to reach out to us please feel free to contact us or submit an event using our submission form. We’d love to hear from you!

“No one is better at revealing how the stories we carry in our bodies need to find form and expression, before they eat us alive.” —The New Yorker

Do you have partially formed work sort of sitting in a drawer, or drifting out into space? Is there writing you maybe started but then gave up on, and yet every once in a while, you feel it calling you back? In this webgasm, Lidia will take you through several steps and strategies to bring leftovers back to life and bring some passion back to the process. Lidia will share a few examples from her own work as well as take on a few examples from participants. Bring at least one to two pages of writing with you so you can explore some direct action.

Includes a conversation segment where we can discuss your ideas and questions. This collaboration is useful for memoir writers, fiction writers, hybrid writers, and anyone who understands that artistic practice is intimately related to the practice of living a life in a body.

Lidia Yuknavitch is the author the short story collection Verge (Riverhead Books), the novels The Book of Joan (Harper Books), The Small Backs of Children (Harper Books), and Dora: A Headcase (Hawthorne Books), and the anti-memoir The Chronology of Water (Hawthorne Books). Her TED Talk “On the Beauty of Being a Misfit” has received over 3 million views, and spawned The Misfit Manifesto (TED Books/Simon and Schuster). She lives and collaborates in Portland, Oregon at Corporeal Writing. She is a very good swimmer.
