LA Writers Center's "Breathe"

An online play reading series designed to advance BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ stories

The LA Writers Center is proud to be a diverse organization. We have developed new work that has amplified BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ stories for almost two decades. But we can do better.

We think instead of speaking, it would be better to listen. Instead of making promises, it would be best to take action. With that in mind, LAWC is partnering with HowlRound to present “Breathe” an online play reading series designed to advance these stories.

We are presenting one reading a month through the end of the year.
