Black Writers Conference provides forum for literature, inspirationPosted: Updated:
The 14th National Black Writers Conference brought together creative minds to support and celebrate their contributions to literature.
The event took place in Crown Heights at Medgar Evers College Saturday and featured panel discussions and workshops for those looking to take their career to the next level.
The conference has taken place every two years since 1986 and was founded by a Brooklyn resident, John Oliver Killens, a famous black novelist who felt his community of African-American writers was underserved.
Now in this year's installment, the conference featured award-winning writers, poets, editors and book publishers keeping the event going strong.
The event wrapped up after four days on Sunday, with organizers hoping it left attendees feeling inspired, regardless of where they are in their career.
