Seeking Black Female Writers

We are currently accepting submissions for Vol. 1 of our book, Cocoa Yellow Diary, with an anticipated release date in the Fall/Winter of 2020. Cocoa Yellow Diary is an anthology featuring a collection of narrative essays by black female writers on the topic of colorism. Whether you're an established writer or just starting out, if you have a story to share, we invite you to submit! Selected writers will receive $50 for their contribution. 




For inspiration, our blog is an open forum where we casually discuss the different topics we're seeking for our book. We welcome you to come read, be inspired, share, and join our community of beautiful black women celebrating ALL shades of melanin. We ask that you come with an open mind and open heart. 



If you have any questions regarding Cocoa Yellow Diary, please send us an inquiry. If you would like information on how to submit your story, please CLICK HERE

We look forward to hearing from you!
