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.

WOC Writers’

THANKS EVERYONE

Over 300 Entries Received!

Submissions Are Now Closed


         Please Note:  This publication has been a long journey but it is nearing completion. The work of reading

       through over 300 pieces and making final selections, requesting edits of authors, and then rereads was difficult because almost every piece of writing spoke to the world of  WOC writers.  Unfortunately we just could

not select them all.  We are nearing completion of the final reads, and copy editing process. 

Thank you all for your patience.  We will keep you updated.
