Please donate to help our programming thrive. Our organization is entirely volunteer-run and relies on your generosity to bring you programming and help serve as an axis in the Arab-American/SWANA literary community.

What We Need:
RAWI is the only national organization that provides mentoring, community, and support for Arab-American writers.
Despite the fact that Arab-American/SWANA voices continue to become more prominent, opportunities for us to share our experiences and insights, as well as to discuss the trajectory of Arab-American literature, is limited. Therefore, RAWI’s programming, which includes community gathering opportunities, provides a rare opportunity to bring a large number of Arab-American/SWANA writers, artists, and scholars (and their readers and admirers) into the same space so we can engage in various dialogues otherwise unavailable to us.
