Why EDC Creations Media

Herstory of EDC Creations

EDC Creations Media Group has evolved from a one-person event planning operation to one of the nation’s leading African American woman owned, Internet publicity and book promotion firms. Ella Curry, the owner, has spent years studying, researching and creating relationships with publishing industry professionals as well as forging a unique bond with the foundation of the publishing world— the avid readers.

While our expansion from boutique event planning and brand consultant agency to a multi-faceted public relations firm has greatly expanded the directory of our services and recognition, the fundamental driving force behind everything we do is a dedication to improve literacy, establish our clients as leaders and to expand the literary territory of our clients.
