The Black Writers Program

NY Writers Coalition's Black Writers Program is a curated literary experience in which Black writers can generate, develop, and share work in a supportive environment. The program includes themed generative writing workshops, drop-in sessions for prompt-based workshops, professional development panels and lectures, a monthly curated reading list, and a community of Black writers to share it all with. All programming, including workshops, is free to attend. We aim to create a writing community that is thoughtful, inspiring, and accessible to Black writers at all stages of the artistic process. Whether you’re a seasoned writer with formal training, a new writer eager to hone your voice, or somewhere in between, all Black writers are welcome and encouraged to sign up.

The Black Writers Program is back this fall! Click here to view and register for our fall 2021 events!
