My Other Entities

Twenty-five years ago I was editing fiction for Houston writers and writing my own stories when I was compelled to form a local writers’ group. That group, thanks to the website I developed, attracted writers of color worldwide. In 1998, I created the first internet-based international literary arts association for Black writers. That spawned the Black Writers Reunion & Conference, Black Writers Retreat, and Writeful Places writers’ retreats. » Learn more

Client Reviews

Any success that I’ve had as a writer/editor can be traced back to my first experience with Tia Ross. When I attended one of her conferences in Atlanta in 2000, it jump-started my writing career, and not just because of the inspiration, motivation, skills development and professional guidance it provided (and there was plenty of all of that)! The services Tia offers are so impeccably planned, well-organized and superbly executed, they set a standard of quality and excellence that I still aspire to–not only in my writing process, but also in my entrepreneurial endeavors and my life in general.

Having attended a number of events managed by Tia Ross, I’ve learned that she is a master at pulling together the components of a successful event and program. Her events are enlightening, engaging and fun! I am impressed by the way the events are organized and executed to meet the expectations of those in attendance. This includes the choice of venue, quality of speakers, agenda, and the attention to detail that her staff provides, and I’m looking forward to attending her future events.

If I were to boil down my experience at writing functions run by Tia Ross to one word – beside “quality” – that word would have to be “efficient.” I’m a HUGE believer in not having my time wasted, so having been to other conferences previously with events scheduled to start at 9AM that didn’t begin until 9:35, making you late to another event you wanted to attend, I was very appreciative that that wasn’t the case at her events. Couple that with the programs themselves that were well run, of interest and chock full of helpful information, I can say it was a great return on my investment. I left feeling well-equipped to taking my writing to the next level as attendees are given plenty of information and resources. Now what you do with all that is on you, but you certainly walk away with the tools to make it happen!
