Rebroadcast: Writers Resist


On today’s podcast, we met with Stephanie Feldman, Philadelphia Writer and Coordinator of the Philadelphia Chapter of Writers Resist, a movement designed to engage a community of authors, poets, filmmakers and the like to use their talents to shine a like on the fundamentals of democracy. Stay Tuned!




The movement rapidly coalesced after poet, Erin Belieu, posted on Facebook, “We will not give in to despair. We will come together and actively help make the world we want to live in. We are bowed, but we are not broken.”

Belieu’s call for writers to organize local events on Martin Luther King Day, January 15, 2017, has already resulted in more than fifty events throughout the US and around the world including a flagship New York City event co-sponsored by PEN America and additional events in Boston, Los Angeles, Oakland, Austin, Portland, Omaha, Seattle, London, Zürich, Hong Kong.
