About Santa Cruz Writers Resist

Writers Resist Santa Cruz is being held in collaboration with PEN America, as part of an international day of readings celebrating free speech and the power of expression to change the world. Consider this our local literary re-inauguration.

Writers will gather to celebrate the diversity of voices in Santa Cruz County, reading from their own work and from activist and political writing that invigorates our ideas of democracy. This reading will benefit two organizations—the local Diversity Center of Santa Cruz County, which supports the LGBTQ+ community, and the national, a global grassroots climate organization. Readers include the Pen/Faulkner Award-winning novelist Karen Joy Fowler and the nationally acclaimed poet, Ellen Bass. Coffee and tea will be available thanks to Verve coffee, and jazz band Wasabi will be offering the gift of their music before and after the readings.
