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 2020 Black Writers Pilot Program included: Jennifer Baker, nicHi douglas, Donnetta Lavinia Grays, Kaitlyn Greenidge, Angel Nafis, Quressa Robinson, and Hari Ziyad.
