Welcome to the GROWN blog

We created this blog for two reasons:

The first is to offer a useful guide to producing a web series. Something like a blueprint – filled with helpful tutorials and tips for others interested in bringing their creative vision to life.  Wanna know how to dress a set with no budget? Pitch a query email? What it’s like breaking a story or writing a script the night before a full day of filming? Working with your best friends and having team conflicts? OR sacrificing a year and a half of going out to pursue a dream. What’s that called? Growth. This is the place for it all.

The second is to continue sharing stories of black womanhood. The ultimate goal is to be adopted by a major network or streaming service for season two and beyond, but that won’t hold us back from telling our stories. This is bigger than GROWN the web series. If you are a black woman, cis or trans, we want to hear from you. We’ll be posting prompts and storytime ideas . If you have anything you want to share with the world, please email us at grownthewebseries@gmail.com. Also, if you’re in the DMV, we’ve got monthly Story Circles for you to share and listen to work by other women of color*. Check out our events calendar on the community page of our website to learn about the next one.

This blog will also highlight DC events, businesses, and organizations that we love and support. So stay tuned! In the meantime, follow us @grownthewebseries and @grownDC for #allthingsGROWN.

With love,

The GROWN team
