About Novella

Novella exists to give all women a space where we respond to the world through written and spoken word. We are a community of women who love to write, want motivation to continue writing, and are open to sharing these written works with like-minded people. Novella is committed to amplifying voices often unheard and creating a destination where all girls, women, and femme-identifying are invited to share their experiences and learn from each other in an intersectional manner. 

Abby Adesanya is the Founder of Novella and a brand marketer based in NYC. As a writer since childhood, she is passionate about weaving storytelling into every narrative of her work, as well as advocating for the advancement and success of women, people of color, and the LGBTQ community.

The Three Pillars

1. You Must Write

Novella is, at its core, a writing club. We are gathering over a shared love of written work and a similar adoration for storytelling. We provide our members with a means of accountability and utilize these prompts to spend more time on the hobby that you enjoy.

2. You Must Be Willing to Share

Writing can be a very private thing. However, there is comfort in knowing that you are not alone in your thoughts or beliefs. There's a release that comes from storytelling and we give our members the freedom to chase that feeling.

3. You Must Be Curious

However, Novella is more than a place for personal unloading and expression, it is a place for us all. Novella is a place for enlightenment as much as it is a place of relief, so our members are active listeners as well as avid writers.
