In the fall of 2022, Girls Write Now brought on mentee alum Kathryn Destin and mentor alum Morayo Faleyimu as our inaugural Editors-in-Residence. Now, as they continue on in different capacities at Girls Write Now, we asked them what defined their year in this special role.

Morayo Faleyimu is currently serving as an Editor-in-Residence at Girls Write Now. She is a writer of short and long-form fiction. A nonfiction writer by trade, Morayo uses fiction to explore emotional truths. The seeds of story, she believes, are planted in everyday life. A writer’s duty is to pay attention and to garden with care. A former educator, Morayo currently works as a professional development writer for a school network in New Jersey.
As we expand Stories, our digital storytelling platform, we are thrilled to introduce two outstanding artists from our community to lead the editorial vision of Girls Write Now.
