Promoting Our People

The BIPOC Book Critics Collective understands the importance of cultural criticism. As book critics, we don't simply review books, we frame conversations around them. By being a part of this collective, we made a commitment to shed a light on self-published and untranslated writers of color who would otherwise be marginalized to the shadows of these meaningful media exposure and dialogue. We understand the bias around publishing and we are taking a stand against it the best way that a critic knows how:

Our collective  and support system for all artists who visit our Artist Collective by being a special place where their creative juices can flow freely. We’re dedicated to our artists, and we provide them with the appropriate training and tools they need to succeed. It’s our mission to ensure that the arts remain strong, and to offer classes to students of all levels - introducing newcomers to art and creativity, and refining the techniques of even the most veteran artists.

We believe every artist needs an adequate space in which to create, and that space should inspire and support their creative process. We also understand how important it is for the place to have just the right environment, and that is what we strive to provide at Artist Collective. If you’re looking for a place that nurtures your artistic journey, look no further: we’re here and we can’t wait to see what you can create.

Promoting Our People

With More Than Words

As book critics of color, we don't simply review books, we frame conversations around them. BIPOC writers, as a marginalized group, hold a unique perspective on art and literature. In order to disrupt the cisgendered, patriarchal status quo in publishing, we engage in conversation with texts that are traditionally published but we also heavily focus our efforts on narratives that are uncommon to review: queer, avante garde, hybrid, indie, self-published, and beyond.  

 

 

 

 

 

By being a part of this collective, we made a commitment to seek self-published and untranslated writers of color. To combat the bias around publishing, we are taking a stand against it the best way that a critic knows how. 

 

Our collective aims to be a self-sufficient support network for critics at varies stages in their career development. By providing our private collaborative community, financial resources, marketing/branding, and mentorship, we provide what it takes to produce strong cultural leadership and advancement. It’s our mission to ensure that the arts remain equitable and approachable by creating a conscious space, where we challenge our assumptions and check our biases at the door.

We believe every BIPOC Book Critic could benefit from a safe space to collaborate. That space should inspire and support the critical process. We also understand how important it is for the place to have just the right moderation, and that is what we strive to provide in the BIPOC Book Critics Collective.
