BWAFGU. Chapbook


A small paperback booklet, containing a collection of both intimate and public writings by author Stevona Elem-Rogers, centered on Black womanhood. This body of work features vibrant full color visuals, original poems, journal entries, first-person narrative essays, and a timeless intergenerational interview with her grandmother. The southern, Black woman vernacular jumps off the pages as the consistent themes of womanism, freedom and growth are explored. Written with raw vulnerability, the Black Women Are For Grown Ups chapbook serves as a reminder of the interconnectedness of Black women. 

"More than a poetry book. It is a dream you get to live in and sink further in with every page." - Cleo Wade
