We believe that literature belongs to everyone, and send volunteers from our Outreach committee into the community to inspire and encourage others. Efforts include a monthly open mic at the Uptown Arts Bar and an annual retreat.



Youth Programs


We strive to empower young writers through workshops, readings, and collaborative community programming. Our youth programs include In Our Own Words, workshops held at seven inner-city schools, and Writers Blocks, a fee-based summer writing camp.
