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 future young adult dystopian novellist looking for a writing group to hold me accountable for my writing! I'm working two part time jobs so my schedule is crazy and since graduating college in May 2022 I have gotten little writing done. I know that there are pockets of time I can use to write but I can't push myself to use those times—I need a group that will! I'm also interested in breaking into freelance writing so I would also like to carve out some writing time to work on samples and pitches for that!
