Black Writers Online:
The Start of Tia's Legacy
Black Writers Conferences & Retreats
Calling for a Community
The demand for an online Black writers community persisted as well, despite the easy accessibility of groups on Facebook, other social media platforms, and private sites. Yet, year after year Tia’s inbox and Twitter mentions remained populated with ongoing requests for information about membership and how to join an organization that no longer existed. Finally, Tia realized that what was out there clearly did not fit the bill. Black writers still needed an online hub, a cohesive community that lent them the support, resources, and outlet that she was arguably the only one willing and able to successfully develop.
