Join us on Wednesday February 8th in Washington D.C. & write *your* resistance at the second annual #Lit-in-Color Write-a-Thon!
Kaya Press and The (Great) Indian Poetry Collective invite you to come and spend a day (or a few hours or even just 30 minutes) with an amazing group of Writers of Color who will be leading generative mini-writing workshops inspired by the writing of Writers of Color. Envisioned by Minal Hajratwala as a creative respite for attendees of the AWP Conference–who spend three days in an extroverted maelstrom neglecting their own writing practice, the #LitinColor Write-A-Thon aims to hold space for anyone interested in writing, creativity and community. This year we will be hosted by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center.
The drop-in workshops are FREE!

ABOUT THE WRITE-A-THON:
Kaya Press and The (Great) Indian Poetry Collective created the #LitinColor Write-A-Thon to hold space for anyone interested in writing, creativity and community. The Write-A-Thon was first envisioned by Minal Hajratwala as a creative respite for attendees of the annual AWP Conference, who spend three days in an extroverted maelstrom neglecting their own writing practice. On the eve of the nation’s largest annual gathering of writers, we create a special space where writers can connect & enjoy free mini-workshops led by amazing Writers of Color.
