Book a Discovery Call

I believe there is power in words, power in asserting our existence, our experience, and our lives, through words.

~ Jesmyn Ward, The Fire This Time: A New Generation Speaks about Race (2016)

Hi, I'm Dr. Ebony Joy Wilkins

Our Stories Matter

I was recently recognized as having written one of the Best Picture Books of 2023! Zora, the Story Keeper is my pride and joy. I have written other books, but this one is close to my heart. This was a dream project to work on. Long before releasing this story to the world, I had big plans to write stories for young children who wanted to see themselves on the page. 
Growing up, I read every children's book that I could find¬†with characters who looked like. When I ran out of these stories, my mom challenged me to write my own. My dad brought home a computer and story writing game, and the rest is history. I¬†have been writing ever since. We each have a story to tell, a story that¬†matters. Our stories connect us.¬†For years, I worked to develop my writing. Several of my books are on the shelves for young readers to find now once¬†I decided it was time to break free from my limitations and step into the person I was always meant to be ‚ÄĒ confident and free to live the writing life I have always imagined.¬†
Now, I have turned my transformation into an easy-to-follow system that anyone can use to unlock their creative potential like never before.

What Curriculum Cafe clients are saying ...

I loved this class and Dr. Ebony is amazing. She was patient, kind, and willing to do anything to help us out. I enjoyed the assignment where we had to go to the library and find a children's book that had been awarded, it was different and got me out of my house. Overall, thank you for the valuable information. 
I am so happy we got the opportunity to experience your teaching style. I can also say, you have given me the courage to speak confidently in front of an audience. Knowing that I was learning to speak publicly was scary at first, but you made me feel at ease on the first day of class. And now that it's ending, I am more confident than ever that I can do it professionally.
Thank you for being a wonderful instructor. I'm grateful for your honesty on all the assignments that helped me improve. Thank you so much for your patience and, overall, your time.
