September 8-9, 2018 - Berkeley, Ca
people of color writers & journalists, podcasters & reporters, essayists & op-ed writers.
what does it mean to write,
as a person of color?
We write, produce, craft, investigate, report as a means to tell our and our communities stories, because the stories we hear about us are not told by us. As storytellers, we contribute to and preserve culture, we entertain with anecdotes, and most importantly, we shape the popular narratives, fictional or factual, that inform public opinion.
Whether you are just starting your career as a storyteller through online essays and op-eds, podcasting as a self-made journalist, or publishing as a seasoned MFA, attending Amplify means you are a storyteller who understands why convening together in these times is important.
Amplify is the premier storytelling conference for people of color
Amplify is a chance to connect with other storytellers, learn from their mastery, and explore issues that influence your work including race, class, community, and ethics.
