Bring The Whole Family—There's Something For Everybody
Dr. Rosie Milligan brings the Black Writers On Tour Writers' Conference back to Carson, California—a Los Angeles neighboring city.

The publishing industry has changed; the Internet, Social Media, E-books and Print-On-Demand have taken the publishing industry in a completely new direction. The days are gone forever for aspiring writers to have to beg and to wait to have their work published. This conference has been designed to provide writers and aspiring writers with the practical information they need to be successful in the literary industry.
This year's theme is, "Literacy is Everybody's Business—Who Will Tell Our Story?"
