About Zayzoh

Hi, there!

My name is Ebony. I'm a writer, author, and an academic who has forgotten how fun writing can be. I'm ready to take a deep dive into the pool of creativity.

Here's my story.

When I was in high school, I wrote a poem-story called "There Was Once A Potato." It's about an overly confident potato named Clamato who meets his match in an equally cocky Yam named Alakazam. A little over ten years later, I published it in the form of a children's book. 

Upon releasing the book, I began doing more and more writing. I wrote poetry and songs, personal essays and freelance articles. I was on top of my game and was feeling pretty darn good. 

Then I became an English teacher.

Up until then, I had been a music teacher. But public school music programs are always in precarious positions. Here today. Gone tomorrow. Luckily, I had an English credential as a backup.

I learned to love teaching English, so much so that I earned a masters degree in it. Yet, I have to say that teaching it deflated my creative mojo. My academic voice had grown so loud that my personal voice slumped her shoulders and took a back seat. 

Now, she's ready to reclaim her power.

So, I hope you'll join me on my journey to rediscover and rekindle my passion. I want to explore the possibilities of how words, images, fonts, and formats can convey ideas, messages, and stories. I want to step outside of the box of academic conventions.
Writing isn't about adhering to a list of dos and don'ts. It's about creating your own dos and don'ts. It's about discovering yourself and your world and giving a voice to those parts of you that have been voiceless. It's about sharing, inspiring, and birthing new ideas.
