You have a story to tell.
You are a writer.
Feminessay was born out of the lack of diversity represented in the narratives of Black people, especially Black women, in academic research about literacy. We realized that there were no online spaces specifically dedicated to Black women sharing our own narratives with each other and the rest of the world, interacting with one another about our writing, and adding to the narratives that we see in research and media. We wanted to make a change by claiming and cultivating a space for this to happen.
