We're excited about our collaboration with Black Writers Weekend, the largest gathering for Black writers. The festival takes place in Atlanta, Georgia, and has been bringing Black literary and film creatives together since 2009. This year BWW will happen August 6th through 9th, and will feature many activities including movie screenings, masterclasses, a pitch fest where creatives can pitch their projects to be greenlit by judges, a lit crawl where people can find new books and share their own, and artist panels where attendees can learn and share knowledge of the publishing and film industry. Over 100 talented black authors will grace the stage, captivating readers with their stories and engaging everyone in insightful author talks, lively book signings, and exclusive reader meet-ups. Mingle with fellow book lovers and cultural enthusiasts at vibrant parties and socials, creating an atmosphere brimming with excitement and new connections. There will even be a Harlem Renaissance costume party, where you can embrace the glamour and vibrancy of this iconic era. The AAMBC Literary Awards serves as the final event honoring Kwame Alexander and Frank Morrison.Whether you're a writer, reader, or simply someone who appreciates the power of words, Black Writers Weekend promises to be an unforgettable experience and celebration of black literary excellence.
