Black Writers Reunion & Conference First Call for Proposals

The Black Writers Reunion & Conference (BWRC) invites proposals for workshops to be presented at the BWRC 2008. BWRC '08 will be held in Tampa, Florida, June 19-21, 2008, with workshops being presented June 20-21.

BWRC '08 provides speakers and participants with an opportunity to focus intensively on specific writing topics. Often writers' conferences concentrate solely on the craft and business of writing books for publication.

They welcome proposals on any topic of interest to the writing community, but particularly encourage proposals on writing careers and writing-related businesses that introduce participants to the diverse opportunities available to them beyond creative writing as professional writers and writing service providers in addition to creative writing and publishing.
