LaVerne N. Knight (formerly Curtis)

LaVerne N. Knight (formerly Curtis) has been considered by many as one of the most prolific writers of our time. With a passion to see women esteemed and empowered, LaVerne has chosen the technique of writing as her weapon of choice. Her style is sharp, accurate and determined to reveal the many hidden issues faced by women daily. LaVerne's aspiration is to quite simply: be the voice for the voiceless.

In addition to her tremendous writing talent, LaVerne has been endowed with gifts as a thespian. Her one-woman show, “Why Not Me…A Day in the Life” was debuted on the historic campus of Howard University in Washington, D.C. and met with a very satisfied and emotionally stirred audience. Full of seven rich characters created, developed and portrayed, single-handedly by LaVerne, “Why Not Me…A Day in the Life” is destined to serve as a launching pad for a very talented Ms. Curtis. Additionally, LaVerne has performed in New York City and Atlanta, GA, and has even graced the stage of the Miss Black America Pageant.

Ms. Knight is also a member of a the TimBookTu collaborative group called Nubian Reign. She writes under the name YNotMe. Check out her work as part of this group effort.
