Hi! As a fifth-year trying to study UI/UX design and media communication, I realized only listening and re-framing other people's stories was not for me. I wanted to tell my own and be able to continue cheerleading others to do the same in the writing industry. I've only recently started to write short stories to make my friends read and critique, but I have the most academic experience in literary analysis and journalistic writing. So in turn, I'd love to find a group excited to share not only their diverse writing and writing expertise, but also an open environment to freely express our ideas and goals. Excited to connect with you all!

Bereket Writing Community

Bereket Writing Community is an intentional, values-aligned space that brings together creative writers from traditionally marginalized backgrounds and matches them into long-term writer’s workshop groups that meet on a regular schedule. We have biweekly and monthly groups, and the writers in each group form longterm companionship with one another to support each other’s writing journeys. Diversity, collaboration, gratitude and social justice are key components of our community.

Currently, with 14 regular groups going on with writers from 14 different countries, Bereket also organizes virtual writing events and programs to support the needs of the writers in the community and beyond. Bereket is currently open to applications to join workshop groups. Please feel free to get in touch via our website: https://www.bereketwriters.org/contact

I'm a new author. I've been published once, and I'd like to meet other writers to talk about our work. I write just about anything, but I love writing fiction mostly. Particularly speculative fiction. I'm hoping I can find a group that can offer insight and good critiques and knowledge of the publishing industry.

Duana Fullwiley

I write creative nonfiction to connect diverse aspects of the world and to bring more human understanding to the ways that science, racial narratives, ethics and power are moving forwards and backwards at the same time. I write poetry as an antidote to the notion of actual progress so that we can breathe with ideas and images as we process a world that insists that it's moving forward despite its circular path 'round and 'round. 
As an anthropologist, my writing is inspired by and also documents what I witness and engage in daily in various places around the world, including right here at home.
