The conference will be more dynamic than ever, with seminars, workshops, and exhibits, highlighting writers, an array of Black businesses, literacy in the 21st century, and career opportunities. Participants will learn how tech and literacy are intertwined in the 21st century. Youth and adults will learn about opportunities in the technology sector.

There will be more than 100 Black authors, and 50-plus Black businesses, showcasing their products and services under one roof. Businesses today are facing new technology and global-driven business competition, and Black businesses must be prepared to meet the challenge. The publishing industry has changed; the Internet, social media, eBooks and print-on-demand have taken the publishing industry in a completely new direction. The days for aspiring writers to have to beg, wait and rely on someone else to publish their work are forever gone. Dr. Milligan has designed the conference to provide writers and aspiring writers with the practical information they need to be successful in the literary industry. There will be authors - local and from across the country - participating. For past events, attendance rose to over 3,000.

Black Writers On Tour & Southern California Black Business and Tech Expo are designed to connect writers with readers, and consumers with black businesses. There will be workshops and seminars for writers/aspiring writers, business owners, aspiring entrepreneurs and for the general public. There will be book signings throughout the day.
