Bolen recruited Zora to write for him and persuaded her to move to Fort Pierce, and thus at the age of 65, she began yet another new career as a regular journalist for The Chronicle. In Brevard County, where she had been living, she had worked briefly as a librarian but was unable to find suitable permanent employment.
Throughout her life, Zora wrote articles for many national magazines and newspapers. However, she had never worked as a regular reporter, so her move to Fort Pierce to work for The Chronicle represented yet another fork in her life's road. Zora's articles, which ran from 1957-1959, included stories on community concerns, race relations, hoodoo, black magic, and local features.
