The artists & authors are all members of the Lower Eastside Girls Club. These stories and comics have been produced over the past 5 years with many girls participating in Fly Orr’s Comics Art Class as well as Literary Storytelling and Spoken Word programs. The girls are middle-school age from the Lower Eastside and come from diverse backgrounds. What they all have in common is their struggle with self esteem, bullying, limited educational resources and middle-school “drama”. The LESGC gives the girls an opportunity to learn about all the different aspects of the publishing industry and where their talents can shine.
