The Asian American Writers’ Workshop is an alternative literary arts space, an incubator for emerging writers and a sanctuary space for readers and ideas. Our public space is designed for gathering communities and building critical dialogue between literature and movement culture. At a time when migrants, women, people of color, Muslims, and LGBTQ people are specifically targeted, we are a community of activists who use our artistry to advocate for and center the voices and ideas on the margins. We offer a new countercultural public space in which to imagine a more just future.

The Asian American Writers’ Workshop is accepting applications for the Fall 2020 season for workshops,  readings, panels and performances. If you have a workshop or event which you’d like to present to our curation team, do visit our workshop and events pages and even better, attend our events and workshops to get a feel for the space and AAWW community. 

All the AAWW events at our site are open to the public with a $5 suggested donation. No one is turned away for lack of funds. Our on-site events take place on weekday evenings  starting at 6:30 PM and run for 50 minutes. If you have an event that may have unique space or A/V needs, please do include this in your applications. 

The Asian American Writers' Workshop will be accepting pitches for Fall 2020 public events & workshops until 11:59PM, July 31.

The majority of  our on-site workshops take place on weekday evenings starting at 6:30 PM and run for 2-3 hours. Workshops can take place as one day intensives or as a series.
