Purpose-Driven and Committed

MISSION STATEMENT 

According to the Lee and Low’s Diversity Baseline Survey 2.0, those who identify as Black only make up 5% of the publishing industry overall.

BlackCreatorsHQ is a community of authors and illustrators with one core mission: to share our talents and create stories that increase Black representation across all genres of literature. 


We are also proud to serve as a welcoming space for all Black creatives in publishing – providing a bridge between individual artists, industry professionals, and communities in order to amplify and improve the frequency of contributions from Black authors and illustrators in publishing.

HERE'S HOW WE'RE ELIMINATING DISPARITIES: 

  • Hosting Informational sessions led by industry professionals
     

  • Writing and illustration craft workshops 
     

  • Partnerships
     

  • Cooperative economics
     

  • Peer-led trainings and support
     

  • Community outreach, and awareness-based initiatives
