"This is an amazing initiative for meeting like minded writers

as well as getting the community we all need."

- @jeremiahptimmons

Our goal is to “check in” with the writer by creating a safe space that encourages the strengthening of writing skills in the BIPOC community, as we move to the forefront of creative control of our own storytelling narrative.
