An Intergenerational Creative Writing Experience for Girls!

Zora’s Daughters is a creative writing and literacy program for girls ages 8-18 years old. At Zora’s Daughters girls learn a variety of writing techniques, read the works of great Black women writers, and practice public speaking. Through creative writing, girls learn to feel more confident so they can use their voices in a world that often ignores their needs. Together, we connect and create. We are a sisterhood of creativity!

Salute to Mari Evans

ONE MONTH AGO, as part of a new initiative, our friend and author, Aleta Hodge, hosted a celebration for African-American writer, poet, and dramatist, MARI EVANS on August 24, 2021, at St. Phillips Episcopal Church, Indianapolis, IN. Bookmark Indy was launched in 2021 by Indiana Humanities as a one-of-a-kind literary exploration of Indianapolis through the eyes of the writers, like Ms. Hodge, who’ve called it home. Jayda D. and Riley G., two members of Zora’s Daughters were featured during the celebration.
