Blackwick is a community-led writers guild. Our mission is to be a safe space for our members to learn, grow, and write, while providing the resources and support to achieve their individual goals. Our values and guidelines are member-driven and paramount to this mission.
Growth: We are all working towards goals, big or small, and believe in fostering a community that is eager to learn from each other, discuss writing, and share our unique perspectives.
Support: We’ve organized ourselves as a guild, as opposed to a writers’ group, because we accept the charge of protecting each other’s work. We are a community dedicated to cheering each other on without judgement.
Respect: Not everyone will write something you enjoy or even understand. We all write at different skill levels and each have different goals for our writing. Our members respect these differences as writers and as people. Harassment of any kind will result in removal from the guild.
Inclusion: We are a majority LGBTQ+ group, founded on the idea of providing a safe space for all writers. No discriminatory language is tolerated in member interactions or in submitted writings (without appropriate trigger warnings). Everyone is welcome no matter who you are and what you write.
