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 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 a biennial gathering, provides a rare opportunity to bring a large number of Arab-American writers, artists, and scholars (and their readers and admirers) into the same space so we can engage in various dialogues otherwise unavailable to us.

RAWI aims to raise $5,000 this Giving Tuesday. These funds will be used to support:
  • Student Scholarships
  • Monthly Workshops in different cities
  • Workshop leaders in poetry, screenwriting, and prose
  • Writing Retreats
  • …and much more!
We are a 501 (c) (3) organization, so your donation is tax-deductible. 

This is important because…

When our government openly speak about deporting us, silencing us, and stealing resources from our countries of origin, we fight back with art and language.
