#Blacklitchat is a monthly Twitter party featuring Black authors. Founded by Bernadette Adams Davis and Dee Stewart in October 2010, the chat is a key gathering place for authors and readers to discuss novels, writing and the publishing industry.
The community for the chat has grown since it’s inception and readers can count on a lively discussion in which authors answer their questions. Through the chat authors have an additional platform to promote their books, hear reader feedback and share their experiences as writers.
If you are an author or publisher interested in #blacklitchat, please contact either Bernadette or Dee via email.
