Support Black Women Writers

Black women writers live at the intersection of race, gender, and class discrimination in the overwhelmingly white publishing industry. While Black women writers can be found on Best Sellers lists and receive some of the highest literary honors, representation and visibility remain scant across the literary landscape. 

Together, we can combat this disheartening reality and combine our resources to fulfill Torch Literary Arts' mission to provide opportunities for the advancement of Black women through literary arts.
