What Does Black Women Write Do??
Great question! Once a week we get together and write. It's not complicated. All writers, be they academic, comedic, creative, professional or otherwise are welcome. You can write siliently or bounce ideas off of other women writers if you so desire. Work from home? Join us! We promise you'll have a productive day.

The basic point is to strengthen the networking and creative ties between women of color living and creating in Los Angeles.
