Zora’s Den (ZD) is a sacred space where Black women writers in search of encouragement and sisterhood can support one another in personal and professional growth. What started in January 2017, as an invitation-only Facebook group of twenty-two sister scribes, has grown to over two hundred women across the United States, and in various countries around the world. Zora’s Den welcomes and encourages its members to stand firmly in their identity as Black women writers.

Free, no registration required. Seating is first come, first serve. Please note that marking interest does not reserve a seat. 

Writers LIVE programs are supported in part by a bequest from The Miss Howard Hubbard Adult Programming Fund. 

Re-opening activities are made possible in part by a generous gift from Sandra R. Berman.
