“Create dangerously, for people who read dangerously. … Writing, knowing in part that no matter how trivial your words may seem, someday, somewhere, someone may risk his or her life to read them.” ― Edwidge Danticat

Attending writing-related activities is one of many ways to get better at the craft. It allows you to get input on the craft from fellow writers, and of course, get acquainted with the industry and its community even more.
With that said, here are some writing-related events specifically for BIPOC writers to look forward to this year!
The Center for Black Literature, which annually holds the National Black Writers Conference, has announced its theme for its 16th edition in 2022: “The Beautiful Struggle: Black Writers Lighting the Way.”
According to its website, Publishing in Color is geared particularly to helping BIPOC writers learn how to market their work and get published.
Publishing in Color will be holding its Fall 2021 Online Conference from September 13 to 17, 2021. Meanwhile, they also have other events slated in June and November. Visit this for more information and to register.
