Romance Slam Jam Convention Romance Slam Jam Convention
Kansas City, Missouri, 


Date: June 2020 – Dates to be Announced

Website: Romance Slam Jam Convention
Phone: 214-856-0697
Email: info@rsjconvention.com

Description:

Romance Slam Jam convention is an annual book lovers’ event for black authors of romantic fiction and the book lovers who read them.

RSJ was born out of a necessity in 1995 due to the systemic exclusion by the publishing industry of black authors from acquisitions, mainstream distribution, and industry awards. In a response to gatekeepers who once said, “People won’t buy black romance,” RSJ set out to break barriers in the now billion dollar romance book industry and support authors who challenged the illusion of inclusion.
