HBO’s Olivia Armstrong praised Girls Write Now’s “Day of the Girl” celebration, which honored best-selling author Tomi Adeyemi and actor and best-selling author Pheobe Robinson, co-host of 2 Dope Queens, calling the event “a buzzing haven for creative women of all ages and background.”
As Robinson shared at the event: “I’ve been a writer my whole life and I used to be so concerned about who was going to ‘get’ [my writing]. I began to wonder what would it sound like if I tried to sound like me. I wanted to write a book forever and I didn’t get the courage until I was 30, which is so silly. Now, I’m like, I’m never going to hold myself back.”
HBO was an event sponsor.
