Get Involved


Guest hosts join Maya and Tara, to provide two thoughtful writing prompts that the community writes toward in real time. At the end, we share (optional) a tiny sliver of the day’s work. Guest hosts are invited to read from their work, or host a Q&A for the community, and we promote their work throughout the evening. We ‘pass the hat’ for all guest hosts, and offer a $100 stipend to Black and Indigenous guest hosts.

See our Guest Hosts page for a list of past hosts.

Contact us if you’re interested in hosting.


Are you Black, Indigenous, or a Person of Color? Want a creative community space on a Monday night?

BIPOC Writing Community is open to ALL people of color. You don’t need to identify as a writer, just show up with writing tools and a desire to connect. You won’t have to share what you write, but you can!

We write 2 prompts for 20 minutes, with a 10 minute break in-between. After we write, we have time for optional sharing, announcements, and community.

Mondays, 5 PST/7 CST/8 EST. Link to the #BIPOCWritingParty here.

Another way to participate is to be our tech person for one of the Writing Parties. We give instruction and lots of appreciation!
