In 1999, writer and activist Bisi Ideraabdullah created the Women of Color Writers (WOC) Workshop in a storefront on 5th Avenue in South Brooklyn. The WOC Writers Community is now a global collective of women writers, and their forthcoming anthology Boundaries & Borders will feature writing from women across the globe. WOC Writers promotes the rights of women of color to be seen and heard through their literary voices, and helps women build their writing skills and confidence, as well as providing opportunities for publication and performance of their work. This evening at Greenlight features readings from WOC Writers participants, including Puerto Rican poet and novelist Carmen Bardequez-Brown; Baltimore native poet and novelist Kim Brandon; poet and writer Lorraine Currelley, Pearls of Wisdom storyteller and Executive Director of Poets Network & Exchange; writer, educator and blogger Sojourner Walker Willams; Nigerian American writer and filmmaker Iquo B. Essien; and Afghan American writer Sahar Muradi, editor of One Story, Thirty Stories: An Anthology of Contemporary Afghan American Literature.
