Special Announcement: Real Men Write


On June 8, 2013 the Motown Writer’s Network along with Scribblers, Screamers, and other Wordslingers Magazine will conduct its regular monthly meeting around the theme, “Real Men Write”.

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

The June meeting will feature approximately six African American male authors who will talk about their books, give insight into the reasons they started writing, and actively reach out to young people in the community with the hope of encouraging them to follow in their footsteps.

Barnes and Noble Café at Wayne State Campus on Warren and Cass will be the site for this great event. It will start promptly at 10 a.m. If you have a young man in your life that you want to expose to the literary arts, bring him on this day! This will be every young man’s opportunity to see and talk to some real men about what they love…Writing.  For more information, check out the link to the PSA here:

Please spread the word! Use hashtag #RMW when mentioning this event on your Twitter or Facebook. Scribblers, Screamers, and other Wordslingers Magazine and the Motown Writers Network are looking forward to seeing you!!!!

        July 13 2011 Guest Backgrounder

1.  Guest:    J. Michael Collins                       Call-in Time:  5:30 p.m.

Guest summary: J. Michael is a photographer and overall friend and a huge supporter of the literary community. He publishes the online magazine, coined as the literary community for authors, poets, playwrights, journalist and others who write.



SSW is an online magazine that’s designed around the needs of the literary community.

We started as a local newsletter (Scribblers, Screamers and other Wordslingers) and after only five months of publishing we realized that we needed a broader platform in order to better serve this community.

We are preparing many new features that we hope will benefit writers from every genre.

In the meantime, if you would like to view past issues of the newsletter in PDF form you can go to

Our goal is to make SSW Magazine the destination for writers when they need the latest news and information relative to their needs.

Additionally, SSW will be a community with the goal of sharing experiences and ideas with others. We urge you to participate by being a regular contributor and reader on this new site.

The formal title is Scribblers, Screamers and other Wordslingers. (Scribblers write, while Screamers recite, they’re all Wordslingers, you know, they’re literary types.)

The title is a parody on those who write, speak and visually communicate through artistic means by use of any medium, be it books, songs, poetry, photography, film, stage and more.

Though the title is meant to provoke humor the publication is seriously dedicated to keeping the literary community informed. It also provides information to the broader community about upcoming events, new artist, product reviews and other valuable information about the literary and artist communities.

We also want to connect new and established authors and artist with others in the community to promote, sell and/or exchange products, services, ideas and information.

We know that several credible options already exist for readers seeking information about what’s going on in the literary community and SSW simply wants to be one more option that the consumer will have.
