Hello hello, 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 me to show up fully in the capacities and places I need to.
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. 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. If it’s nasty or there’s no need for my input, a team member will get back to you.
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, visual art, or any other intellectual property on platforms that make money for their owner. If you would like to re-publish my work, please inquire about my terms & conditions.
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. The latter is to confirm you are who you say you are and to get a feel for you and your project.
That's it! We're looking forward to hearing from you. Please note that this contact form has been set up to prevent verbal abuse and harassment from anonymous persons, no information gathered will be used for any other purpose besides responding to the contents of your message.
Alexis & Team
