The next masterclass will be on July 31st at 10:30AM PT. Are you in?
This free masterclass is for you if:
…You’re ready to write your first book, but you’re getting distracted by all the shoulds of writing as a woman of color
…You’ve got a draft to revise, but fear and doubt are creeping in
…You’re struggling to get responses from agents, and you’re scared it’s because you’re a woman of color
…You’re just tired of getting advice from white folx who don’t know the struggle
We’ll also talk about…
- How white supremacy values show up when we’re trying to write
- The question of whether you’re representing your culture too much or not enough
- The fear that your book will become The Book that defines your culture
- Our unique experiences in writing and publishing as women of color
In 2015, I joined a majority-white publishing industry that had been failing to make space for people of color for YEARS.
I spent a ton of time afterward struggling to be heard. I realized that if I wanted to see a change, I couldn’t rely on the white folx in power.
I had to do it myself.
And now, I’ve learned that existing as a woman of color in publishing doesn’t always have to be a fight.
With other women of color by my side, I’ve been able to accomplish more than I ever thought possible—and I’ve felt held and understood along the way.
With the right people, publishing doesn’t have to be lonely. It doesn’t have to be hard. It doesn’t have to feel like an uphill climb.
It can be everything you dreamed.
I’ve been the only woman of color in an entire publishing organization. I’ve been silenced as a woman of color, and as a member of various diversity committees. I’ve been passed over for promotions because I’m a woman of color. And I’ve come out on the other side stronger and more determined than ever to help other women of color find success in publishing.
With seven years of experience, including a window into one of the top agencies in the United States, I can help you find your way.
It all starts with this webinar.

I sent Stefanie the skeleton of a story and where some editors might have crafted a body onto that skeleton, Stefanie did something even more incredible. She helped ME craft the body and make it something whole. I am completely blown away by the time and care Stefanie took to first understand my vision of the story and to then help me shape that vision. I felt respected and understood throughout the whole process. She wasn’t just an editor, she was also a reader, a listener, a cheerleader, and a friend.
