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!
—Tom Willinsky and Jen Sternick, authors of Snowsisters

"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."
— Jacqueline Goldfinger, playwright of Click
