Help inspire hundreds of readers & amplify the voices of local African American authors
Become a Corporate Sponsor of Black Ink
Black Ink: A Charleston African-American Book Festival offers several sponsorship
opportunities to companies of all types and sizes. Should you have a specific request or need, we can also develop a sponsorship package tailored especially for you.
Due to the virtual nature of this three-day event, there will not be a traditional “swag bag” of sponsor-supplied materials. Instead, sponsors are encouraged to provide direct digital-
marketing or service-related incentives such as discount codes for goods or services.
