Black Writers Returns This Year With a New Series of Events!
Welcome to Black Writers 2015! This year, Black Writers Events announces our new series of workshops and retreats for both the aspiring author seeking writing time and peer feedback as well as the professional writer in need of a well-deserved getaway. Our boot camps and workshops offer you enlightening and informative lectures with hands-on writing sessions. Our retreats give you ample time to get away and relax, write alone and with the group, share your work, and interact with other writers during structured gatherings designed to enhance your creative process. Attendees also enjoy great food, group outings, networking opportunities, and other activities.

Black Writers emerged in 1998 as the African-American Online Writers Guild, the first 501c3 literary arts association to organize online for Black creative writers. AAOWG grew from 39 to nearly 7,000 members in the first two years, after which the name was changed to Black Writers Alliance. Our first conference in 2000 brought together just over 200 writers from across the U.S. and kicked off a series of events which set the standard for writing conferences for writers of color. Three years later, the BWA was dissolved, but the ongoing demand prompted Black Writers Reunion & Conference to return for six more years. And now, in 2015, we bring you new programs furthering our mission to provide quality education, training, networking, and support for Black writers.
