CONTACT AND BOOKING

Ashley was a huge help to us in writing and revising our novel, Snowsisters.  In a subplot, a cis girl generates conflict over the attendance of a trans girl at a week-long writing conference for high school girls.  Ashley helped us form and refine the trans girl and her story arc, as well as affirming the timing and resolution of the subplot.  Her insight was terrific, she showed great professionalism and we are very grateful for her significant contribution.  As a colleague, she was fun to work with, witty, respectful and clear about what needed to be eliminated, changed and reduced.  We would use her again and recommend her highly!

"Ashley offered a unique, precise, and vital dramaturgical eye for my new play. As a cis white writer attempting to write my first Trans character, I did a significant amount of research on my own. However, preparation does not always translate onto the page. Ashley's invaluable feedback included both overall dramaturgical notes as well as specific commentary on my Trans character. The play is more compelling and relevant, engaging and honest, since I worked with Ashley."

Ashley's insight was invaluable to me as I worked on Squad, putting my mind at ease and illuminating things I hadn't thought of. She was so straightforward and easy to talk to, expanding my awareness of how readers might respond to certain aspects of my book. I had a particular scene I was worried about, and without my even asking about it, she confirmed that it was in fact working the way it needed to. She also helped me see how a particular detail about a character's parents might read to a larger audience, and in the end I only needed to make a small adjustment to help it come across the way I'd intended. I highly highly recommend Ashley to anyone who's written trans characters or themes and is wondering to themselves, "Ah jeez, did this do the exact opposite of what I wanted it to?" With Ashley's incisive insight, you'll have concrete feedback and considerations to work with, rather than just pacing the insides of your own anxious mind. I was definitely breathing easier after our conversation.
