"Creativity & Culture, Wisdom & Wares!"
Welcome to the inside of my head!
My name is Nora Brooks Blakely. People know me as a literary administrator and legacy builder, playwright, lyricist, author, seeker-of-balance, fervent promoter of (and participant in) Black arts and culture, and lover of folklore, laughter and rational human beings.
On this site you’ll find information on upcoming books and writing projects, sources of humor and inspiration, thoughts from visiting writers and other artists and artisans, original T-shirts and other creative products, a completely subjective collection of upcoming exciting and intriguing Black cultural events locally (sometimes nationally!) and more.
Thanks for stopping by!
Here you’ll find out about . . .
A book! Yippeelujah! A brand new book!
Yes, there are books in here and they are coming out in the world to meet you.

What’s going on?
As a writer, I live in a virtual community of performing, visual and literary artists who live around the country and beyond.

Plans and Positivity
I care about a lot of the things you care about. I’ll be throwing out news items and trivia I’ve stumbled across. Conversation starters, too.
For more information on breaking news, random thoughts and a gathering place, check out the A Little More of Me window.
Oh, and . . .

Welcome. Wander. All my windows are open. Look inside.
