Parallel to the global crisis, the U.S. is witnessing a resurgence of social and racial inequities that causes us painful pause: Who are we as a country? Who are we as humans? In February of 2020, IWWG launched a mentor program for young writers of color. With the skillful and soulful direction of Nakia Hill, we matched mentors and mentees who wrote together throughout the summer and fall of 2020.Listen. There are so many beautiful voices everywhere and yet so many we never hear.In April of 2019, I became Executive Director of the International Women’s Writing Guild - IWWG. One year later, the world was torn by a pandemic, causing economic upheaval, personal loss, and isolation for far too many.
IWWG now shares the poignant and promising results of our pilot mentorship program. I ask every one of you to read and reflect on this compilation of their writing. Their voices and words speak to all the possibilities for justice and equity. But also for the need to listen.
All proceeds from the sale of this book will fund IWWG's racial justice programs and support our mentors' and mentees' writing. -- Michelle.
