Keeping the Circles Strong: Supporting the Work of Native Writers and Storytellers

Wordcraft Circle and Native Writers' Circle of the Americas 

Supporting the work and words of emerging and professional Indigenous and Native American writers and storytellers since 1992.

With generosity, reciprocity, and a focus on decolonization through literature, youth literacy, language revitalization, and community revitalization, Wordcraft Circle ensures the voices of Native American and Indigenous writers and storytellers—past, present, and future—are heard throughout the world.



"We have stories / as old as the great seas / breaking through the chest / flying out the mouth, / noisy tongues that once were silenced, /all the oceans we contain / coming to light."
—Linda Hogan
