Guests will enjoy dinner, dancing, networking, and a silent auction on June 4th from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. The attire is formal. The BWG provides avenues of support and networking to Maryland’s African-American diverse writers. We plan to celebrate the BWG, its history and accomplishments, and honor our founder, Louis S. Diggs.  Our keynote speaker will be Tony Norman, columnist and associate editor for the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.  For information about the Black Writer’s Guild of Maryland see
