THE DASH WRITERS TRIBE
What's The Dash?
The Dash is Black Writers Collective’s accountability tribe of short-form Finishers. For writers of shorter works in need of camaraderie and accountability, this supportive tribe meets up online for thirty-minute writing sprints on essays, articles, stories and other short-form work. (Long-form and book-length sprinters meet in Finishers.) Share your goals, progress, challenges, and accomplishments with the tribe members of The Dash.
Eligibility: Open to all members of Black Writers Collective
