Recent news:

We loved collaborating with Fecund Stitch and The Fools Collaborative to participate in the 3rd Annual Big Gay Cabaret, benefitting the 30th Annual Fresno Rainbow Pride Parade and Festival. Our readers, Jamie Moore & Arielle Jones, were phenomenal. Event info here.

Thank you to all who attended and donated to Fresno’s Writers for Migrant Justice event on September 4th! Our local event had almost 200 people in the audience, and together, our community raised over $1800 to contribute to the national WMJ efforts. A full event recap page is coming soon to this website, but for now, we thank all who helped make this event happen. It was an honor to work with you all, and we’re so proud of our city! Check out the national event’s fundraising page for national totals, and see our local event’s Facebook page here for local totals. Check out our Event Blog for a post on this event and look out for info about our fourth annual Winter Community Reading, coming in early 2020!

Former readers and collaborators, we are putting together contributor pages for each of you. If you have updated bios, websites, publication links, book purchase links, or author photos you’d like us to include on your page, send them our way!
