Established in 2000, the Black Writers Reunion & Conference is well known for its engaging workshop presenters, outstanding topics, inspirational ambience, and professional organization. While BWRC does not discriminate against participants of any race, BWRC is the only touring conference with the added cultural bonus of being presented both by and for Black writers.
BWRC’s mission is to educate, support, and motivate aspiring, emerging, and published writers. We promote and encourage artistic expression and growth through skill development in the art, craft, and business of creative writing in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and drama as well as business and career endeavors in professional writing. Through diverse workshops, seminars, critiquing services, pitching sessions, writing contests, and awards, we have brought together thousands of writers from around the world to study, develop new skills, learn advanced techniques, hone their crafts, boost confidence, earn recognition, make new friends and reconnect with old ones, gain new readers and fans, and share with each other the unique and unparalleled experience that has firmly established BWRC as one of the preeminent writing and publishing conferences in the country.
BWRC is managed and produced by Tia Ross, Monica Blache, Neecha Turner, Marklyn Pierre, and Mathew Wilson with superb support from a host of speakers and volunteers.
