Writing While Black
W R I T I N G W H I L E B L A C K
Writing While Black is a creative writing series centred around the voices of writers from the African Diaspora. These workshops are tailored to black writers at all stages of their writing journey (beginner, emerging, mid-career, established) writing in any genre or discipline (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, journalism, dramatic writing, spoken word etc.) The main goal of the workshops is to create a safe space and develop a community of black writers who can provide support to one another's artistic projects.

As well as personalized poems by yours truly, WWB workshop coupons, photography services, tote bags, notebooks and an extra special shout out.
