About Awful Good Writers

Awful Good Writers is a writing-centric creative community exploring the point of connection in everything.

Awful Good Writers provides participants with an intimate entry-point to a wide network of writers. Each series offers interactive deep-dive learning sessions facilitated by the best wordsmiths from around the world. We support daring expressions of living, social equity, and inclusivity, celebrating arts and culture, music, and community.

Awful Good Writers encourages participants to improve their own lived experiences through writing.


In the summer of 2020, Awful Good Writers hosted the Heavy Hitters Festival, which was composed of more than 40 of the most beloved spoken word artists on the planet to offer something life-giving in a time of quarantine. Twice a week for three months, the best of the poetry community took to the Heavy Hitters virtual stage, giving intimate performances, leading insightful workshops, and charging the hearts of the participants in what some called the Coachella of spoken word.

In the fall of 2020, Awful Good Writers debuted Awful Good Writing Workshops, a series of online writing courses taught by a selection of Heavy Hitters and the greater performance poetry community.

On May 10, 2021, Awful Good Writers was officially acquired by Super Rad Media, LLC, a subsidiary of Kerredyn Collaborative.
