“Wanna fly, you got to give up the shit that weighs you down.” - Toni Morrison
Years of oppression later, black and brown communities still have not widely accepted therapy as a means of saving ourselves.
claim to leave our problems in God's hands while worrying ourselves to death
believing that we can't afford to sit on some therapist's couch, so we eat, drink, and smoke our pain away
choosing not to talk to someone because we don't feel comfortable; we don't trust; we fear being further damaged... the list goes... on.
“Not everything that is faced can be changed; but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” -James Baldwin

A safe and sacred space for our people to reflect, heal, and manifest through writing...

"Writing truly became a form of therapy for me during the hardest times of the year when I couldn't afford a session with my therapist. Through my own self-imposed "Written Therapy", I began to visualize my higher self and slowly but surely, I'm becoming her." - Nia Sade Akinyemi, The Literary Revolutionary, Creator of #WrittenTherapyATL
