The Loft Literary Center offers a range of programs for writers of color. One is Inroads, created 20 years ago as a “seminary and study program” for writers outside Minnesota’s dominant ethnicity. The latest incarnation tapped six young novelists, poets and memoirists to study and engage in their culture under a mentor — Gwen Westerman, an Inroads alum. 3-Minute Egg went to the public readings that capped the summer-long program.
