A Lesson In Finishing Your Damn Book with Beverly Jenkins Voice Lessons Podcast

    • Society & Culture

Beverly Jenkins never planned to be an Author. Growing up in the Civil Rights Movement, her mother passed along a love of books and history so she became a librarian. In this episode, we talk about her journey from first-time author to becoming the primer writer of historical Black fiction in the U.S. with 49 books in an industry that rejected her. She also shares intimate moments of her past, her process, and why she’s rooting for women writers to get off the sidelines and "publish your damn book”.
