I’m Jo – a freelance inclusion consultant and editor with several years of experience. I offer support with developing books and interactive narratives for all ages, from picture books to non-fiction, novels and video games.
I also provide public speaking and workshops for any groups with an interest in inclusion. I have spoken on podcast episodes and at a range of conferences, as well as teaching workshops for employers, writers and publishing professionals.
My areas of expertise include autism, aromantic- and asexual-spectrum topics, the bi umbrella, children’s books, illustration, interactive narratives, intersectional feminism, mental health, non-binary gender, relationship education, sex and puberty education.
I have a strong working knowledge of various other topics relating to marginalised groups, so I can also offer guidance on broader diversity issues in content.
I joined Inclusive Minds as an Inclusion Ambassador in 2018 and have been working with publishers ever since. I’m now a freelance inclusion consultant, though I still work with Inclusive Minds frequently.
