Magic in Her Pen
(Inspiring young female writers)
By Alika Turner
For centuries we have been blessed as a culture with amazing African American female writers. Authors, who have inspired, uplifted and encouraged women. As young female writers we have some large shoes to fill but, none the less amazing and powerful shoes.
Truth is told as a writer your work is never prefect your words never rhyme. You run from the truth because it’s easier to tell a lie. You’re often defined as “”Inspiring Writers”.
Although you’re young, your experience has carried you like a baby in the womb. When alone you write with grace and confidence: when amongst others your words stand tall. They are powerful, they carry empathy and sympathy. Your desire is to be heard and understood. Your passion is to create a movement and enlighten the world.
Young women write if that’s all you know. Write to prove a point. Write to set yourself free. Write to give a voice to the mute. Young women embrace your talent, feed and nurture your talent. Never hide that pen for it will dry. Remember there’s magic in your pen. Let it go free and change the world.
Embrace your ideas
Give them a voice
Write from the beginning
For there is no end
Share your heart through your pen
Young woman your words hold passion
Your thoughts encourage dreams
For there is magic in your pen
