On June 8, 2013 the Motown Writer’s Network together with Scribblers, Screamers and other Wordslingers Magazine in celebration of men’s month will present, “Real Men Write”.

Real Men Write is an effort to introduce more people to the contributions African American men have made to the local literary community.

The June meeting will feature approximately six local African American male authors who will speak to a gathering of young adults about their books.

They will give insight into the reasons they started writing, and actively reach out to those in attendance with the hope of encouraging them to follow in their footsteps.

I would like to extend an invitation to join us on June 8, at 10:00 a.m. on the campus of Wayne State University at the Barnes & Noble Bookstore. As the Motown Writers Network and SSW Magazine presents “Real Men Write.”

Editor, @sswmagazine

Real Men Write Feature~ Eddie Connor

Eddie%20ConnorEmpowering people to overcome obstacles and walk in their unique purpose is the real life message shared by Eddie Connor, who is a 15-year cancer survivor.

Eddie is a resident of Detroit, Michigan but grew up in Kingston, Jamaica.

As a product of a divorced family, Eddie realizes that he was not born with a “silver spoon” but discovered strength in the midst of struggle.

As an Author, Evangelist, Motivational Speaker, Poet, Political Advisor, Teacher, and TV Correspondent on CBS/CW 50, Eddie Connor shares his story of overcoming cancer in his three books: Purposefully Prepared to Persevere, Collections of Reflections: Symphonies of Strength – Volumes 1-3, and E.CON the ICON: from Pop Culture to President Barack Obama (

Eddie Connor is a graduate of Eastern Michigan University, having earned a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education, with a focus in History. He has also earned a Master of Arts Degree in Education from Marygrove College, as a Reading and Literacy Specialist.

He has garnered prestigious honors for his community activism and role model leadership, such as the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Humanitarian Award, Eastern Michigan University President For a Day, the Black Male Engagement Leadership Award, and named one of the top 100 leaders in “Who’s Who in Black Detroit.”

Over the years, Eddie has encouraged youth to overcome life’s obstacles on his radio program, “Youth On The March” being broadcast throughout the United States and Caribbean, to more than 25 million people.

Eddie desires to educate and empower the next generation.  He has launched a literacy initiative “Boys 2 Books” which is designed to combat the school-to-prison pipeline, by empowering young males via life skills and literacy. The program has been endorsed by the United States Congress.

From Cancer to Conqueror to more than Conqueror, God has truly given Eddie Connor a voice to reach individuals of all ages and backgrounds with a message that you can overcome any obstacle.
