The Essence of Motown Writers Alliance is the brainchild of two Detroit writers: Sylvia Hubbard founder of Motown Writers Network, and Author, LaDonna Tutt.
Created in February 2004 the mission of this alliance, and the EMWA, is to establish a viable literary connection for aspiring writers within the metropolitan Detroit area.
Native Detroiter, Sylvia Hubbard has been a writer for as long as she can remember. Often sneaking away from chores to hide in a closet to write Ms. Hubbard completed her first novel at the age of twelve and her first book, Dreams of Reality, was published in 2000 through Xlibris.
In 2000 Sylvia also founded Motown Writers Network, the largest Internet site for Michigan writers and created her own small press, Hub Books Literary Services, in 2003.
As a divorced mother of three, Hubbard also lectures on writing and journaling, works closely in the literary and reading community of Metro Detroit and has published her second literary effort, Stone's Revenge.
Born and raised in Detroit, LaDonna Tutt has been writing since a very early age. Just finding her niche as an aspiring novelist, Ms. Tutt's work has been featured in The Essence Ezine.
In 2004 Donna founded the Too Sexy For You Writing Group with aspirations on helping to establish African-American writers in the literary industry.
