The Detroit Writers' Guild—originally the Detroit Black Writers' Guild—is a nonprofit organization located in Detroit, Michigan. It was founded in the summer of 1983 by Peggy A. Moore and her 9-year-old daughter, Peggy Sue. The Moore’s concern, at that time, was the lack of books for black children written by black authors in the Detroit Public School System. Realizing a void existed in the number of black writers and publishers available, the Guild was formed.The Detroit Writers' Guild has grown over the decades and now invites a diversity of community writers who are making a difference with their work in Detroit and its surrounding neighborhoods. The DWGuild is back in 2017 with renewed energy and vision for impacting literary arts in all of its extraordinary forms and mediums.
