FOR LOVE OF WRITING

Vision

Writers are passionate people with equally passionate voices; we are people who want to tell and share truths in a variety of ways.  Unfortunately, the marketplace can sometimes be a closed door for writers whose ideas do not fit neatly into templates or popular trends.

FLOW (For Love of Writing) is a group of African American female writers.  The group’s  vision, then, is simply to help writers navigate the choppy waters that separate the shores of manuscript completion and the marketplace.  Our vision is to offer a myriad of assistance, opportunities, and resources to ensure more diverse voices be heard in various platforms--- the page, the stage, the microphone, the Internet, or the screen.  

Mission

FLOW’s (For Love of Writing) mission is to support the efforts of writers and to help them effectively transition from one stage of the writing or publishing process to the next.  We do this via a variety of resources and opportunities, which include:  manuscript critiques, editorial guidance and referrals, writing retreats and conferences, quarterly seminars, and marketplace resource sharing.  Our goal is to synergize the efforts of serious writers, whose diverse voices need to heard and shared in all their diversity, honesty and beauty.
