WRITING, EDITING, & RESEARCH CONSULTING
I have presented my scholarly work at numerous conferences and have published chapters in Undead Souths: The Gothic and Beyond in Southern Literature and Culture (LSU, 2015) and Monsters and Monstrosity from the Fin de Siècle to the Millennium (McFarland, 2015). I am currently working on revising my first book project, Haunted Narratives: The Afterlife of Gothic Aesthetics in Shirley Jackson, Angela Carter, Shani Mootoo and Toni Morrison, which has been invited for review at a major academic press. I served as Consulting Managing Editor (2014-2015), Managing Editor (2012-2014), and Assistant Managing Editor (2011-2012) of the Southern Literary Journal, now South, a peer-reviewed scholarly journal at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I coordinated copyediting and compilation, proofread and corresponded with contributors and editors. I am available for selected writing, editing, and research consultation beginning at $75 an hour (via Skype, phone, and in-person). Send a message via the contact form for more information.
ON THE HORIZON: Workplace consulting
I believe that we can be healthier, happier people if we enjoy the work we do. I also believe that responsible workplaces provide the space for and understand the importance of whole health--the mental, the physical, and beyond. I can help non-profit organizations and corporations create workplaces that support their employees' full well-being through creative, innovative consulting. So, need some insight into overcoming a creative block? Book a Tarot reading. Craving a way to incorporate meaningful, on-going conversations and practices around diversity and inclusion? Come to a seminar class and read and learn about literature, music, and art created by revolutionary people--women, people of color, queer folx, and others who bring what's buried up to the surface (and there are no quizzes or grades!). Curious about using crystals, creating an altar, and developing a spiritual practice? Consult with me. Does a workplace program that incorporates all or some of these services intrigue you? Are you and your organization committed to creating a more equitable world? Do you and your employees value a healthy work-life balance? Contact me and let's see what we can create together.
