BIG NEWS IS HERE: Writ Large Projects and The 309 Collective are launching 309 BOOKS!!! they'll be publishing books and zines, their own and those of other teen writers from around the country (and world eventually).

"We’ll be there as they learn to edit manuscripts. They’ll learn how to work with authors ethically and respectfully. They’ll learn to hustle for each other. They’ll learn to shield each other.

In a way, it’s like a combination MFA/MBA in publishing at the school of Writ Large. Without the student debt. Or all that other MFA nonsense.

We (both WLP and 309) will be writing down all our process and experience with this so that we can share it with other young people who want to do this. "

We are launching 309 Books, a teens only publishing imprint from Writ Large Projects & The 309 Collective.

Poet/Artist Tanzila Ahmed, on her debut full-length collection of poetry, Grasping at This Planet Just to Believe (Writ Large Projects):

“Every Ramadan since my mother’s passing, I’ve written daily poems as a practice of prayer during the month of Ramadan. Daily poems, over one lunar month over ten years. 2,800 poems, if I had actually done it without fail. Some years were more successful than other, depending on the year, the season, the heart, the world politics, the grief. Some years, all I did was write two poems and then fall into a depth of nothingness.

“Ramadan is the holy month of Islam, where Muslim around the world fast from food, abstain from ‘bad’ behaviors, and re-commit themselves to prayers. It’s often considered a spiritual re-set with the fasting from food giving a sense of clarity. In a world where reality is so often a distraction, Ramadan feels like a deliberate annual reminder of Allah and faith and love in this world.

“This project has become one of the most spiritually fulfilling part of how I connect to the world during Ramadan. I hope these poems can support you on your journey as well.”

a new blog post from Chiwan Choi on a general strike for poets.

The publishing world is too much of a trash fire. It’s long past time for poets (and other writers) to strike.

Introducing a New Upcoming Braddock Business: Writ Large Projects

Six businesses went through the Braddock Business Community Initiative (BBCI) Program last year and were selected by the committee made up of Braddock residents, business owners, and leaders of the community. I've interviewed all of the businesses and this week I'm spreading the word about the future of Braddock's Business District on Braddock Ave.

Next up is Writ Large Projects.
Judeth Oden Choi and Chiwan Choi are no strangers to entrepreneurship. They're the owners of Writ Large Projects and Collaborative set to open up at 712 Braddock Ave. The couple have been in business for fifteen years with a mission to rethink the publishing industry by centering communities. "We're hoping to open as a local bookstore and coffee shop and also have a community media lab and meeting space to run educational programs and writing workshops with a literary space," Judith spoke with excitement. They're hoping to open their doors in 2025 but know that it's a long road before they get to that point and are excited to get involved in the Braddock Community.

The BBCI is a program that teaches local entrepreneurs how to be developers and create proposals for projects such as the business district revitalization. Stay tuned for tomorrow's business.
