Hurston-Wright Writers’ Week 2004: conference and workshop for Black writers

Hurston/Wright Writers’ Week 2004

Sunday, July 18 — Saturday, July 24, 2004
Howard University
Washington, DC

Hurston/Wright Writers’ Week is the nation’s only multi-genre summer writers workshop for writers of African descent. Since the first workshop in the summer of 1996, over 700 writers have attended the weeklong program of classes and presentations by publishers, agents and writers.

The Week brings together Black writers from around the United States, as well as Black writers from the Caribbean and Europe, who create a nurturing, safe space for each other to discuss their work, its meaning and unique aesthetics. Hurston/Wright Writers’ Week is distinguished by the diversity of the writers it attracts—published, unpublished, college students, high school students, seniors, retirees, professionals – all chosen to participate in the Week on the strength of their writing.

Perhaps the highest accolade given to the workshop is the number of participants who have returned to their communities and, inspired by Hurston/Wright Writers’ Week, have formed community workshops and support groups for Black writers.
