My name is Ama, and I am a Black feminist writer and editor. My writing revolves primarily around Black pleasure and joy, with a special interest in poetry and erotic fiction. I'm from D.C. and I like good beer and candles.

In addition to my own flowery poetry and essays about identity and sex and freedom—which I share in my newsletter—I edit!

My editing and consulting services include everything from proofreading and copyediting, to publishing and communications/marketing strategy. If you would like to set up a consultation, please reach out via email. I look forward to working together!
