Black in the City

on January 18, 2017

The Black Writers & Artists Network was launched in 2015 by Nottingham Black Archive with the aim of raising the profile of Black Writers in Nottingham as well as documenting Black Writers from the past and the present. It is a growing haven for creative writers of African Caribbean descent to write, support, share, discuss, meet, curate events and perform.

The Black Writers & Artists Network are looking for poetry that responds to the theme of being ‘Black In The City of Nottingham.’ The Network seeks work that is connected to Nottingham from writers and artist who are native to the City or who have lived, studied or worked in Nottingham.

Entrants are encouraged to explore in as many ways as possible the various threads (social, economic, political, cultural, personal, etc.) that weave into the theme and be as experimental as possibke when responding to the idea of being ‘Black In The City’ of Nottingham.

Submission Guidance Notes can be found at
