MEET YOUR NEW CREATIVITY COACH

Hi, I’m Felicia Pride, Head Curator here at The Create Daily.


I'm a storyteller with a calling (trust me, I tried to run from it) to help other storytellers—especially those who have been historically excluded—thrive creatively and professionally.

This all began over
10 years ago

I started a free newsletter to share amazing opportunities for creatives–from funding to residencies and more. 

My baby, The Opportunity Roundup, became a best-kept secret while growing to serve thousands of subscribers.

But the thing is—I never intended for it to be a secret! It thrills me to see women, Black, POC, queer, and other historically excluded storytellers succeed, and I’m all about helping as many of us do so as possible.

A decade later, I’ve gathered so much more insight on what my fellow storytellers crave to feed their creative journeys. So I’ve expanded our capacity to serve, by tapping a Black and woman-led team of creative badasses with storytelling experience across genres, platforms and industries. 

And now, we're driven to help you achieve your wildest creative dreams.

on the other part:
‘the why?’

Why are we so confident we can get you on track creatively?

Because we’re speaking on what we know.

OUR STORY

OUR STORY

We’ve been there. 
Disconnected from our most creative self. Picking up side gigs on the side of our side gigs… but somehow still broke. Then too tired from the hustle to create.

And we gotta set the record straight: Hustling is not creating. Hustling is hustling. 

We said we were frustrated with art, too. Creatively blocked and “out of love” with it. Tried to turn our backs on art and leave our dreams behind.

But the fact is: We only get this one go round. 

If you feel that creating is your life’s work, you owe it to yourself to dwell in the best creative space of your life.

We believe the Golden Age of Storytelling is the one we’re in—because we are in it. We get to tell our stories now, and do it well.

The Create Daily is here to help you design your creative career and imagine new models for your success + sustainability.

Can You

RELATE?

Fun fact: I wrote and illustrated my first book at age 5! It was about a family of dogs who got around town on rollerskates. 

Can You

RELATE?

Fun fact: I wrote and illustrated my first book at age 5! It was about a family of dogs who got around town on rollerskates. 

The book was wildly successful in my kindergarten class. But keeping up a creative practice was hard when there were so many distractions. I mean, the Smurfs! Come on!

I would abandon writing after this first book and wouldn’t pick it back up seriously until some twenty years later. It would be the first of two serious creative hiatuses.

Yep, I know about creative comebacks.

“The challenge helped me to realign myself with what is most important and that is staying creative on a daily basis”

“This challenge really helped me out of what I realize now was more of a mental block than a writer's block. There have been so many distractions and frustrations for me recently that were causing me to push my writing aside without even realizing it. The challenge helped me to realign myself with what is most important and that is staying creative on a daily basis and not trying to make time for it or put it off because everything else was too overwhelming. Writing is where I find my peace. Now ideas are really flowing for me again. One of the best courses I have taken to support my writing career in a long time.”
