Write Now! SF Bay builds multicultural community by reflecting the complex diversities among the Black, Brown, Indigenous and People of Color that comprise 60 percent of the Bay Area's population.

Since 2015, Write Now! SF has supported more than 400 emerging and established BIPOC writers and artists.

Their prose, poetry and artwork reflects the lived realities of people from all walks of life—educators, healers, activists, immigrants, LGBTQ, the formerly unhoused, and just plain folks with roots in Native America, Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and beyond.
