Chicago Black Authors Network

The Chicago Black Authors Network (CBAN) was founded in 2010 by Darryl Harvey with the intention to support and educate new writers about the publishing business. Also, we are dedicated to being a Chicago Renaissance for both urban literature and fiction/non-fiction in general.


CBAN  serves as a driving force in telling African-American stories written by African-American authors.  Through the cooperation of dedicated members the organization shares resources that enables it to host and attend literary events throughout the year. 


From romance to comedy; children to fantasy; history and culture to inspirational and religious; we know that we can fulfill whatever form of literary works your mind desires.
