Ways to Donate

Writes of Passage was founded as a result of weekly writing sessions at the Juvenile Justice Center in Dayton, Ohio, and two years later, in November 2019, the focus shifted to publishing Thirteen2Nineteen: A Literary Magazine for Black Girls & Teens.

The magazine features essays, poetry, artwork, and profiles in entrepreneurship of amazing and talented Black girls, teens, and women.

As the literary magazine continues to evolve, I hope that you find value in supporting this work by supporting my birthday fundraiser (starting in late November annually). The funds raised are used for the following:

  • writing-related programming, including free writing sessions with teens (virtual only for now)
  • website maintenance
  • print version of magazine
  • editing services
  • prize(s) for winner(s) of the Black Girls Write Contest
  • cover and center art contributions
  • a nominal payment for artwork and writer’s essays/poetry.

All graphic design, magazine layout, and social media management are provided in-kind. 

Below is a tally of fundraising efforts since the beginning.
