Feminessay is a space that makes writing sustainable for Black women by offering a free space to build our writing identity, and share our work, stories, and voices with the world in order to challenge common narratives that usually surround us in a negative or comparative light. We hope that this online community will grow as a social space where women can talk about, think about, and share our writing with one another before and while submitting our pieces for publication in the Feminessay space.
“We write for the same reason that we walk, talk, climb mountains or swim the oceans – because we can. We have some impulse within us that makes us want to explain ourselves to other human beings.”
— Maya Angelou
