WELL-READ BLACK GIRL (WELLREADBLACKGIRL.COM)
Well-read Black Girl (WRBG) is a Brooklyn-based book club and online community that has been working to increase the visibility of Black women writers and their accomplishments since 2015. On September 9, WRBG will host its first-ever daylong writers conference and festival to create communal spaces for Black writers and readers. Morning sessions at the conference will allow WRBG’S community to engage with fellow writers, literary agents, and editors; participate in workshops; and learn how to pitch editors and write book proposals. The second half of the day is the festival, an amazing book club with an array of writers. Join more than 20,000 WRBG digital book-club members online, or meet up in person at what’s sure to be the first of many amazing festivals.
