Charlie’s Port is dedicated to the development of compelling literature, theatre, film, and social movements that are inspired by or created by children.
Children have the ability to generate palpable creative material, momentous social movements, rich and complex art, and stunning performances that challenge societal standards and the status quo. This can fascinate people of all ages, which is why we help little geniuses do what they want to do.
The Zoey’s Zany Life pre-release on Good Day Atlanta!
Lowery writes [her debut] with heart and ends Zoey’s sixth-grade year with a stirring speech about being yourself and learning from one another… This outspoken narrator should monologue her way into readers’ hearts and teach them a few valuable lessons along the way.

That this is coming from the mouth of a publishing world prodigy (remember: having your first book published at the age of 35 is considered to be young by publishing world standards) is incredible. I’m 43 years old, and I think even I could stand to hear some of what Lowery is preaching here from time to time.

The mind of Zoey Song is like a torrential river after a storm. Zoey’s Zany Life by Mikayla Lowery is one of the best examples of a child’s mind expressing “stream of consciousness.” This book is a wonderful, wacky adventure.
– Portland Book Review
A wonderful read for late elementary/middle schoolers with strong narration, and identity as the main theme.
– Marisa Donnelly, The Teacher’s Closet
This author brought forth a fabulous read that I will cherish forever and will go back and re-read just so that I can feel what it is to be that age again and again.
–Jenny Bynum Reviews
It is astonishing that a child could write such brilliant stream of consciousness.
