Since 2017, Slant’d has hosted a range of community gatherings, such as story slams, narrative workshops, cooking classes, art therapy workshops, and more—engaging 1000+ AAPI writers both URL and IRL across the United States.
Through years of nurturing emerging creatives through our publications, it became clear that there was a need (and a hunger) for opportunities for AAPIs to unlearn who or what creativity looks like, and to find safe and joyful places to share their stories, fact or fiction.
We’re currently building out a vibrant arts and culture program that will have a lasting impact on our community’s creative journeys.
for writers of all stages to ignite and build on new ideas, develop sustainable models to support a creative life, and to feel empowered to become agents of change within the AAPI community.
as fundamental steps in the journey of self-discovery.
that reflect the deeply varied experiences of the Asian diaspora living in the United States.
