Writing is an exploration

“Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing and learn as you go” – E.L. Doctorow

I have always enjoyed writing from when I was a little girl. It is what has led me to publishing my own work, wanting to inspire and support other writers, and starting Pens Up Press. I am sharing this short quote in the hopes of inspiring some others. There have been some recent changes to the press and there are more to come. Keep writing. And stay tuned.

I am an activist, author, and teaching artist passionate about anti-racist, anti-sexist, and anti-imperialist education. I started Pens Up Press because I love to read and write and because I believe in the power of our people to liberate ourselves and each other through learning and grassroots activism. In conjunction with Pens Up Press, I manage the Uproar Poetry Group facilitating free creative writing workshops and supporting free open mic events. I live in Harlem with my dear friend Marcus Potts, my fiancee Xi'an Glynn, and my black cat Squeaky.
