“’Black and Write’: An Inside Look at the African-American Writing Experience” offers an insightful look into the lives and struggles of contemporary, self-published Black writers. Filmed in part at the last Black Writers Reunion & Conference and released in 2013, the award-winning documentary further underscored the importance of high-quality educational events by and for Black creative writers and was a strong impetus for the return of Black Writers Events.
When asked what prompted plans for the 2015 events, Black Writers Events founder & CEO Tia Ross stated, “We missed each other too much, but there’s also the obvious ongoing demand for the quality programs we offer to aspiring writers who are eager to learn and perfect their craft and established authors who crave the nurturing and camaraderie that are intrinsic to the Black Writers family.”
As you watch the documentary, know that the Black Writers legacy is “to be continued.” Subscribe to our mailing list to be notified of upcoming events.
