Writing for social change
I have two decades of experience in writing, editing, and communications strategy—and a passion for harnessing the power of language for social justice.
I write to shape change: thought-provoking essays, poetry that pushes boundaries, and hard-hitting articles that challenge the status quo.
I am the author of the award-winning poetry collection We Come Elemental (Alice James Books) and two chapbooks: bough breaks (Meritage Press), and Dovetail (Slapering Hol Press), with Kimiko Hahn. Publishing credits include Lit Hub, the Rumpus, the Georgia Review, Black Warrior Review and many more.
As a nonprofit communications writer and editor, I specialize in donor communications. I work with change-makers who are working toward racial, economic, gender, and environmental justice. I support visionary organizations that are dedicated to nothing less than transforming our broken world. I can help tell your story to inspire donors, activists, and partners to deepen their engagement with you—whether that’s through giving money, giving time, or taking action. Learn more
Do you have a writing or editing project that requires sharp thinking, clear prose, and an inspired heart? A creative collaboration you want to engage in? A reading for which you’d like me to book me? I’d love to hear from you; please get in touch.
