Greenlight is honored to welcome back the Women of Color (WOC) Writers Workshop for a virtual reading showcasing the recent work of their members. The WOC Writers Workshop was founded in 1999 by writer and activist Bisi Ideraabdullah in her storefront on Fifth Avenue in South Brooklyn. Now a global collective of women writers, WOC Writers advocates and promotes the right of women of color to be seen and heard through their literary voices and provides a safe and supportive environment for WOC writers, helping them hone their skills, build confidence and publish their work.  It also fosters opportunities for WOC Readings, Poetry Classes, and Publications.  Boundaries & Borders, WOC's newest publication, is due out in mid-2022. Hosted by Ideraabdullah, this evening features Nuyorican Poetry veteran Carmen Bardeguez-Brown (Lo que aprendí al otro lado del mundo, Dreaming Rhythms) and a group of WOC writers from a plethora of different backgrounds—from here in Brooklyn to the Middle East—reading work that spans themes, genres, and generations.
