Live, Write is not a publication but a creative writing workshop free and open to anyone lacking access to a safe, thoughtful and encouraging space for sharing and critiquing work. The catalyst for the workshop began with an observation. There seemed a gap in most workshops where writing by contemporary writers of color (WOC) and material that is sensitive and central to these communities seemed missing. That gap is closing, so while the initial motivator is still present, the workshop is about joining experienced readers to those that lack those vital connections.
