Poets & Writers honors HOW DARE WE! WRITE by Sherry Quan Lee

How Dare We! Write: A multicultural creative writing discourse edited by Sherry Quan Lee was named a “Best Books for Writers” entry by Poets & Writers online magazine!

This collection of essays about writing and navigating the literary world by writers of color—including Sherrie Fernandez Williams, Marline Gonzalez, Ching-In Chen, Sagirah Shahid, Wesley Brown, and Hei Kyong Kim—offers wisdom, insight, support, and advice on how to carve out a more expansive space for diverse voices. The essays are paired with inspiring and generative writing exercises, and the book is divided into sections focusing on themes such as literary gatekeeping, the tyranny of grammar, identities, personal narratives, rejection, and healing.
