Black Writers Collective

AN INNOVATIVE COMMUNITY OF BLACK WRITERS AND EDITORS

Writing can be a solitary endeavor, but it doesn’t have to be with Black Writers Collective. We connect you with a network of fellow creatives for inspiration and feedback and support you in numerous ways.

"Hands down one of the most robust and organized writer resources available. The value provided is tremendous and search friendly. This platform is essential, by and for passionate literature enthusiasts who understand what Black writers do for the culture."

THE FIRST ONLINE COMMUNITY FOR BLACK WRITERS
Founded in 1998 as the African American Online Writers Guild, the first nonprofit 501c3 literary arts association to organize online for Black writers

WHAT WE'RE ABOUT

While the organization has transitioned significantly since its inception, the core principles, values and mission have remained the same. We strive to empower writers throughout our community to help further their chances of success, by whatever their measures of success may be, lending support, nurturing, encouragement, guidance, feedback, and facilitating the sharing of opportunities with and within our member base. 

"Good writers probe themselves and their world; good writers laugh and cry; good writers observe; good writers don't just talk about writing, they write."
