A grassroots storytelling movement from the Muslim American community. Founded Jan 2014 with chapters in NYC SF DC Toronto & more. Join us!
The Muslim Writers Collective is a grassroots storytelling movement from the Muslim American community. Our monthly open mics, running since 2014, have featured hundreds of first time performers - poets, journalists, comedians, musicians, students and more - who have shared facets of the Muslim consciousness that were hidden until now. Our chapters in New York, the Bay Area, Washington, DC, Toronto, and beyond have welcomed thousands of attendees to witness these new stories emerge. PRI has called us "an oasis to Muslims in Trump's America" and VICE has acclaimed us as "a space for young Muslims to honor their humanity."
