In 1950, wordsmiths/scholars/activists Rosa Guy, John Oliver Killens, Dr. John Henrik Clarke, Willard Moore, and Walter Christmas founded the Harlem Writers Guild (HWG) to develop and aid in the publication of works by writers of the African Diaspora. It has been in continued existence since its inception, making it the longest running African American literary organization.

Noted author Grace F. Edwards dies at 87

To all supporters of the Harlem Writers Guild:

Today, we regretfully announce that someone near and dear to us all has transitioned to join our ancestors. We are sad to inform you that Ms. Grace F. Edwards died on February 28th, 2020, from natural causes.

Ms. Edwards has represented the Harlem Writers Guild for decades, as our leadership, long-time Director and Secretary Emeritus. Many of you became familiar with Ms. Edwards through one of the many facets of her life and life’s work—past students, faculty, fellow writers, educators, colleagues, among countless others. In addition to serving as a professor of creative writing for multiple universities, Grace Edwards often extended herself to such community programs as the 92nd Street Y, the once-popular Frederick Douglass Creative Arts Center, and other networks to facilitate affordably priced writing workshops for otherwise economically disenfranchised writers in our community.

To celebrate her life, achievements, her dedication to educating writers, her mentorship, as well as her immeasurable contribution to the longevity of the Harlem Writers Guild, we hope to reach out with more information soon. All plans have been suspended due to New York City’s shutdown, amid the COVID-19 Pandemic.

We thank you for your commitment to our collective as we grow in our creative journey and share our publications. We wish you all peace and joy in these strange and troubled times. And of course, we look forward to seeing you again.

Sincerely,
Members of the Harlem Writers Guild
