Third Annual KWELI Conference is a Writer’s Gem by Serena W. Lin

Once again, KWELI journal, helmed by Laura Pegram, has pulled off another smashing iteration of its can’t-miss annual writers’ conference!  KWELI doesn’t disappoint. Even after the original venue experienced an electrical failure and shut down hours before the conference, Laura & Co. were able to move the event from Brooklyn to a lovely new venue in Harlem, Poet’s Den Theater at East 108th Street. Truly, the smooth transition in a situation that would ordinarily lead to cancellation is a testament to Laura’s leadership, work, and devotion, in creating a community of readers, editors, and writers that support KWELI.
