Writing in Color is a program focused on building community for BIPOC writers. The program includes monthly meet-ups that aim to connect writers of color with peers to share ideas, inspirations, new work, successes, challenges, and resources to foster a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive writing community in Colorado and beyond.

May (Zoom): Rachel Werner joins us to discuss defining your niche, pitching, and querying. 

June (Zoom): We're excited to host a book launch for J.E. Thomas’ new middle-grade novel Control Freaks. J.E. will talk about her own journey as a writer and, together with industry representatives, answer questions about getting your book finished and published! *Please note that this meetup will be held on the fifth Friday in June as it will be a featured "Writing in Color Presents" event that is open to the entire Lighthouse community. If you would like to attend virtually please register here. If you would like to attend in person please register here

July (Zoom)Teow Lim Goh joins us for a conversation and reading from her essay collection, Western Journeys.

August (Denver): Join us for our regularly scheduled (in person) monthly meetup during the Writing in Color Retreat where Confidence Omenai will be facilitating a craft lecture based on her mixed media art installation Did You Die Though? Confidence describes Did You Die Though? as “an exhortation to raise the dead. An invitation to grave robbery. An indaba embracing the ceremony of radical self-compassion and resurrection.” 

September (Zoom): For this month we'll be coming together for a session focused on writing prompts lead by Writing in Color's Program Coordinator, Twanna LaTrice Hill. 

In 2023, Writing in Color will meet quarterly for in-person mixers. Meetups will continue to be on Zoom for the in-between months.
