Ama Akoto

Hey, there! I am a Black feminist writer and editor born and raised in Washington, D.C. My writing revolves primarily around Black pleasure and joy, with a special interest in poetry, and erotic fiction. I am currently transitioning away from my WordPress blog to a website on Wix and I welcome you to join me there.

Please visit my new website here.

For regular updates, subscribe to Sunny Scape — my monthly newsletter featuring poetry, short rants about the world, and conversations with marginalized artists exploring identity, pleasure, and liberation.

My editing and consulting services include everything from proofreading and copyediting to publishing and communications strategy. If you would like to set up a consultation, please reach out via email at!

ProofreadingTechnical fixes regarding typos, typeface discrepancies (headlines, bolded words, etc.), and punctuation to ensure a ready-for-publication document. *This is the last stage in the editing process.

PublishingWork together to format and distribute your work on any desired platforms.
