Own Your Narrative.


Within every family there is a Griot, a family historian who knows the family lore. They hold all the stories that bind the family together and create its unique set of values and beliefs. Within every person there is a storyteller with his or her own unique life tales and lore. We are all composed of stories; it is what binds us in our humanity.

My passion is locating and inspiring the writer within all of us. I believe there is power in owning your narrative, and becoming fully aware of the life stories that define you. Whether journaling, blogging, oral storytelling, fiction writing, poetry, or essay writing, there lies a library of stories within all of us and I urge you to find, record, and share them.

 There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.

-Maya Angelou
