Black Writers Have No Support Groups Like White Writers

To My Fellow Black Wordsmiths,

I took this audio from one of my writing meetings I host here in Tarrant Country, TX called Wordsmiths & Readers of Tarrant (WRT), a group I started so local writers and artists in the area could have a place to actually discuss and explore the craft of the language arts.

The splendid young lady I'm speaking to goes by the pen name Nai Williams (

Our meeting dialogue gravitated towards the issue, being that we're both black writers, of how black novelists and poets don't have the same types of support networks and peer groups white writers have, which makes it extremely difficult for us to stay motivated as artists.

In this edition of Poethnic Justice, where I like to cover how literary art is an effective tool in fighting white supremacy, we discuss some solutions to this dilemma that all black writers face.

Please feel free to join the discussion.

One Love & One Justice,
The Stormy Poet
