About Us

Black Authors in Residence (BAiR) is a marketing collaborative comprised of award-winning and bestselling Black women authors dedicated to raising the visibility of stories across the African Diaspora.

We believe sisterhood and Black fiction open the doors to a more empowered and inclusive world. We are publishing professionals striving to amplify untold Black stories.

We connect with readers and maximize our exposure in every distribution channel, promoting our work on bookshelves worldwide.

Whenever you are creating beauty around you, you are restoring your own soul.
