We're creating a community of writers to find feedback and support

Join the Black Writers Collective tribe

About Black Writers Collective

Black Writers Collective is a private network for literary creatives who dream of a supportive, empowering environment to engage with fellow writers for accountability and the positive motivation and feedback to be the writer you feel called to be. 

Not the Last, but the First

Black Writers Collective was the first literary arts association to organize online for writers of color back in 1998. We continue to embrace the challenge of empowering Black writers to achieve your goals. 

Before You Join

If you're landing here through any link other than blackwriters.org/join/, take a moment to visit Membership Benefits on our website to learn more about membership to ensure our network is right for you before you click the join button. 

What's Required

Many want to be part of a writers community, but only a select few actually have what it takes to thrive within that network. 

To be part of a community, you have to do your part too. 

1. Speak up. 

2. Respond to others.

3. Contribute. 

4. Participate. 

5. Share. 

6. Engage.

Should You Join?

If you typically join groups and lurk, don't fill out your own profile, never attend group meetings, or don't respond to fellow members or hosts, this is not the community for you.

We're not looking to build a huge membership; we want engaged members who actually get something out of their membership. We want you to feel like you've found your tribe and relish being here!


Before you join, be aware that we do not offer refunds should you change your mind later about being part of our community. Black Writers Collective is a reciprocal network. We cannot ensure member engagement or return on investment without effort on your part. By joining, you acknowledge that you are aware of our refund policy and accept the terms and conditions as outlined above. 

Currently Closed to New Members
