Award winning journalist, author, and podcaster.

My debut non-fiction book, Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race, was published in June 2017 to critical acclaim. It has since become a Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller.

Sadly, I do not have the capacity to accept or discuss work requests via social media. Please contact me via my agent instead.

I’m always up for seeing my work reach readers who aren’t fluent in English. Please contact my agent, and we’ll see what we can do.

I am dialing down the number of events I’m doing. Please reach out to my agent with your request, and I’ll see what I can do.

I accept a very small percentage of the frequent speaking requests I receive. Please don’t be offended if I say no. I need to protect my time to write, think, and experience life. Before you get in touch with my agent, please think about the fee you’re able to offer, the structure of the event, if you can cover travel costs, and exactly what you want from my presence at your event.

I’m really glad to hear that my work has influenced your academic studies. Unfortunately, I don’t have the capacity to provide one on one feedback or interviews for dissertations and academic work. There will usually be an under-celebrated person in your local area who is working on similar issues. I strongly suggest you contact them instead and spread the love!

Consultancy is simply not my area of expertise! I can’t help you do your job in this way, so please don’t ask.

I’m represented by Carrie Plitt at Felicity Bryan Associates. For speaking and media requests, please email her at
