AKIN Reads invites writers to redefine the narrative of people of color in the written arts. To build a community that reminds writers and readers of literature that the experiences, stories, and perspective of people of color are layered, relatable, and valid. Working with AKIN’s Writers Roster, made up of an array of follow POCs, AKIN Literature aims for both thought provoking and entertaining stories to be brought forth to an audience.
