Episode 119: The Making of ‘Rooted & Written’

This week we go inside Rooted & Written, a new Writers Grotto initiative by and for writers of color. Featured in this one-hour show: live poetry and prose readings from the first Rooted & Written workshop series in September, 2019, as well as discussions and reactions from the event. Rooted and Written’s Melissa Pandika leads us on this behind-the-scenes tour, which also features an in-depth conversation between some of the members of the workshop’s founding team — Susan Ito, Aditi Malhotra, and Jesus Sierra — talking about the inception and making of this community-empowerment program.
