KQED Writers' Block

San Francisco NPR affiliate KQED has an arts website, where it keeps an online weekly podcast called "Writer's Block" in which they feature a short (10-15 min), self-contained reading by a writer. They are really looking for writers of color that fit their guidelines (target audience 25-40 y/o so younger, edgier stuff) but are cash strapped and don't have enough staff to do adequate outreach.

They have open submissions for Writer's Block. It's my impression that you'll have a better chance if you: are hip and young-sounding, write in a "literary" fashion, have a book published

I don't think you have to be in the Bay Area, but since they record here, I think they're looking for folks who are swinging through the Bay on a book tour or something.

Please forward to Writers of color everywhere, particularly literary writers who have a book out! Here's the guidelines page: http://www.kqed.org/arts/programs/writersblock/about.jsp
