Event Info/Group History

RAWSISTAZ Literary Group was established in September 2000 and is committed to the support and promotion of books by, for and about African-Americans.  We currently have an online book club, an online literary hang-out for readers and writers with approximately 700 members across the country, a review team called The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers with a repository of over 7000 reviews, and local chapters in ten major cities across the United States.  In addition are our free site services for authors and interaction on Facebook and Twitter.  RAWSISTAZ is making an impact on the literary world and continues to promote literature in a positive, uplifting way.

The RAWSISTAZ Affair is our readers and writers conference/reunion with our online and offline groups, avid readers, writers, and other literary friends.  This year we will celebrate 10 years of literary excellence and will hold our 8th annual event in Atlanta, GA. 

**It will also be the last year we do The RAW Affair in its current format.
