The Black Lesbian Literary Collaborative  workshop is a judgment-free and supportive space to enhance your writing and story ideas and to receive valuable feedback on your works-in-progress. Each critique helps writers advance their work and identify areas of improvement. We critique multiple submissions each month.

Essentially, this is a writing group designed for everyone involved to produce good writing and become better writers. This is a collaborative effort among women with shared cultural experiences who desire a nurturing and productive writing setting. In this workshop, we promote and encourage professional and personal writing (and writing goals) through skill development.

The next workshop will begin in June 2017. Workshop participants meet monthly via video conference and must be available on Sunday afternoons (time TBD). Please review our guidelines and apply for our next workshop here:
