Contact + Connect
Hello hello, kind and thoughtful human - I'm excited to make your acquaintance!
But before you reach out to me, I wanted to say a little word about boundaries and clear communication - and how they operate in my Universe - so that we're all on the same page, and the proper relationships and connections can be made.
I am a student of the imminently wise & wonderful Randi Buckley and her work with Healthy Boundaries for Kind People, as well as the insight and work of Dr. Jennifer McCabe with her body of work around 4 Skills. As a result, Team Alexis & I are big on cultivating firm-but-kind containers that allow us to support my community on Patreon, anyone who has purchased a product or attended an event I host or participate in, my professional commitments, and my creative work.
Here's what you need to know about getting in touch:
- Submissions to this contact form are first handled by my team - Ashley & Dani - and then are passed on to me, if appropriate. You will generally receive a response within 7 business days. I read all kind and/or thoughtful notes and critiques sent to me, but I make no guarantee for a personal response because: all the things.
- I do not accept uncompensated requests for republication of my work from publications or platforms that are monetized. Black women in the United States are already substantially underpaid for our labor. As a result, I do not allow uncompensated republication of my written work or visual art on platforms that make money for their owner. If you would like to republish my work, please inquire about my terms.
- I'm always accepting invitations for interviews and the like -- assuming it's a good fit. If you have a blog or other written publication, YouTube channel, radio or TV show, podcast, etc., I'd love to hear from you! However, please keep your pitch short (no more than 3-4 sentences), as well as specifying why you'd like me to be a guest, and what your gig is about - and provide links to your social media, web presence, and previous content if available.
- I am available for paid guest blogging & writing requests only. If you're interested in having me write a piece for you, please specify the topic, genre/medium, desired word count (if relevant), the desired timeline of execution & publication, your budget, relevant social media links, and a blurb explaining why me. Outside of my rates (depending on topic/medium/etc.), I do have preferred editors that I work with regularly for the sake of keeping my body of work and voice consistent. I may request to work with them, if available/possible, and I wildly, wildly appreciate flexibility on that front.
That's it! We're looking forward to hearing from you :)
Alexis & Team
