"If you're a sucker for steamy romance tales, follow your love-stricken heart to the RSJ Convention in Kansas City. With an emphasis on black love stories penned by black authors, you'll encounter an abundance of page-turners looking to sneak their way to the top of your reading list. Readers can meet authors and even attend a series of workshops to test their writing chops. Those who write or read multicultural characters are encouraged to attend the conference." - Everfest. All are welcomed to RSJ where life long friendships and collaborations have been made. Join the community!
