Desiré Grose is a Chicago based writer who is passionate about helping young black women to lead authentic and emotionally healthy lives. Through sharing her own personal experiences and learnings, Desiré hopes to create a space where black women can feel seen and confident sharing the stories that have shaped who they are today. As a writer, Desiré describes herself as a black woman who uses the written word to challenge the reaction to be afraid of her imagination. By day, she is a marketing and communications writer and copy editor for an international law firm. When she is not writing, you can find her unwinding at a hot Bikram Yoga session, enjoying a new rooftop happy hour with friends, or in light of the pandemic, spending time at home.

Courtney "Coco" Thornton is from Richmond, VA. Though she is only 25, she likes to consider herself a bit of an "old soul". Nothing makes her feel quite at peace like a good book, a bundle of sage, and a cup of tea. However, her real joy comes from storytelling. She believes that "as black women, we are the ultimate storytellers. Our words, experiences, and ancestry shape us and give us a magic unique from other cultures." She writes to experience that magic and to hopefully pass it along to others. Her writing usually reflects her experiences of trauma, love, self-growth, mental health, and healing. She hopes to speak her truth while inspiring you to be courageous and vulnerable. If you enjoy her writing, let her know on Instagram, @orangeucoco.
Continuing in the tradition of the griots that came before her, Micahela "Mickey" Mobley is a poet and essayist who uses storytelling to honor the past, define the present, and dream of a liberated future. She currently lives in the Boston area with her partner and their plant babies. When she is not writing, you can find Mickey working as a justice educator, breaking out into a dance move approximately every 2 minutes and 38 seconds, spending time with her big, fat Caribbean family, and doing all the things that allow her to live with a defiant joy in an oppressive world.
