Lit Diaries

Born out of the need for a creative space dedicated to literary advocacy in the Black community, Lit Diaries serves as the convergence of art, music, entertainment, and fashion, with literary arts taking the main stage! Our journey started as a pop-up event hosted by Tamika Newhouse, founder of AAMBC Inc., featuring creative Black women in publishing and film and providing them a safe space to share their journeys and create authentically.


Now, curating in-person and digital events, Lit Diaries continues to connect creatives and readers just as authentically, in new, fun ways. Join us for our annual 12 Days of Reading events which will include the Creative AF mixer, a fabulous holiday party, featuring food, drinks, and music to get those creative juices flowing. You can anticipate various film screenings and multiple author highlights that will leave you inspired throughout the month with a vibrant holiday vendor market to round up our events. Lit Diaries is happy to present a host of opportunities for attendees to fellowship, enjoy art and books, and connect with ambitious Creatives.


In celebration of the holiday season we will also be collecting books, kicking off our Holiday Book Drive, Dec 7th with the hopes of collecting over 500 books. See the event schedule below and join us all month long.
