Write About Now, commonly referred to as WANPOETRY or WAN, is a community-oriented collective of poets that meet at AvantGarden in Houston, Texas every Wednesday at 7:30 PM with the purpose of providing a multimedia platform for poets to share their work.
For years, we have been helping drive an artistic renaissance, pushing the boundaries of what we thought was poetically possible and catapulting artists into national spotlight. Your support will not only help Houston poets share their art internationally, but will also significantly bolster the type of innovative thinking that has been the bedrock of the Houston arts scene.
We are dedicated toward multiplying the number of platforms poets and storytellers have to share their work. Some of our writers, poets and performers have been featured by Vibe Magazine, Huffington Post, HuffPost Black Voices, HuffPost Women, HuffPost Latino Voices, Everyday Feminism, We are mitu, For Harriet, Fort Worth Star Telegram, San Antonio Current, Wide Open Country, KHOU 11, Austin American-Statesman, KERA News, ABC13, NEWSFIX, Texas Standard, Total Frat Move, Upworthy and more.
