Why we host the AAMBC Awards & Black Writers Weekend

We recognize the power in our words and our stories from our inception since 2008. IN the beginning our mission was exposing writers that reflect you and me. That mission is still the same to this very day. In the past years we have seen a rise in our stories placed on the book shelves, adapted for television and movies, and on the stage. More than ever before our stories are being seen but there aren’t many places where authors are celebrated like the rock stars that they are. Every industry from movies to music has a place in Hollywood but books, and especially black books. Help us change that narrative.

Your support will allow us to continue our efforts to celebrate black creatives and offer free programs:

  • Pay for the venue and event production costs
  • Reward production and shipping
  • Hire instructors for the conference
  • Invite special literary guests
  • Provide honorariums for speakers
  • Ensure the event is low-cost and accessible to the community
