The Colony is a one of a kind space, in the city of Houston, where writers of color can meet to discuss how their culture intersects their craft. Writers of all genres are welcome. These quarterly meetings serve as time to collaborate, build community, and sharpen our craft. Meetings take place in January, April, July, November.

This program is a product of a partnership with The Houston Public Library, Tintero Projects, The Houston Department of Health, My Brother's Keeper, and the Mayor's Office of Education. While all meetings are free, preregistration is required.
