I am so proud of the staff and members of Black Writers Alliance that I could scream. Yessssssssss! We showed up and showed out at this year’s Black Writers Reunion and Conference! I can’t stop talking about the professionalism of the BWRC staff and presenters. Each presenter promised and delivered a dynamite session on the do’s and don’ts of publishing. A wealth of information was exchanged, retained, and sustained by all. I walked away with renewed energy and a real commitment to completing my literary goals. Also, it was absolutely grand meeting and bonding with so many of my contemporaries. There is so much talent in our community and the spotlight was definitely shining on Dallas the weekend of August 3rd.
