Welcome to Waking Writer, a website for thoughtful writers and creatives. Waking Writer champions and inspires writers, creatives, and lovers of language by highlighting, informing, and supporting emerging creative writers across the globe. Waking Writer additionally offers inspirational tips for writers, as well as free resources to help writers grow their endeavors.

Besides supporting writers broadly, the magazine offers a safe space for much-needed discussion about crucial social and political issues. Writers do not write in a vacuum but are influenced deeply by their social and political contexts. Waking Writer encourages reflection and thoughtful discussion about social and political concerns because they affect and, sometimes, constrain the world of writing and literary art.
