The Women of Color Writers Firmly Believe That:


  1. Women of Color have important stories to tell.


  1. WOC Writers’ voices are far too often unheard, under-represented, and undervalued in the literary world.


  1. WOC Writers must believe in their ability to create art, take risk, build self-confidence, and trust their writing voices.


  1. Writers write!  WOC Writers must nourish and practice the craft of writing  ~ enrich and include       our legacy in the annals of literature.


  1. We must recognize our writing as important to the world of art and history ~ We must believe

    in it.

The WOC workshop helped me develop a part of my novel that covered very difficult childhood trauma. Being in a room with women of color created a safe space for me to honestly tell my story. Ashley Y
