Created by NY Writers Coalition in 2003, the Writing Aloud Reading Series unites NYWC’s community of writers and activists with some of the nation’s most prominent literary figures. In venues like Greenlight Bookstore, Jefferson Market Library, South Oxford Space, and the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Art, stories that were once silenced are heard by new audiences in New York City.

NYWC workshop leaders and participants share prose, poetry, and other writings alongside award-winning poets and writers. Featured performers have included Lemon Andersen, Sinan Antoon, R. Erica Doyle, Eileen Myles, Jon Sands, Tiphanie Yanique, Arisa White, and other established artists.
