My work as an editor spans online and print publications, focusing primarily on identity and health. Additionally, I’ve had the opportunity to edit and curate creative publications such as Quail Bell Magazine’s recently released Lunar Phoenix: An Anthology of Black Voices — featuring fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry — and Black Femme Collective’s Wild collection.
Much of my work revolves around representation, identity, and how mental and physical health intersect with experiences of bias and discrimination. You can find pieces like these within my work at Healthline Media (including Psych Central) and Verywell, with several listed below.
Printed pieces of mine can be found publications like Asparagus Magazine, Burnt Roti, Radical, and Landscape Architecture Magazine.
Other publications include well + good, autostraddle, them., Black Youth Project, Center for Victims of Torture, Mic, HuffPost, mindbodygreen, among others.
Here are a few newly published pieces:
