The Critical Companion 

In 2018, when I was a freelance writer and editor for the website Black Nerds Create, I developed an article series called The Critical Companion. Its focus was to create more opportunities for Black nerds to have a place to write features (with a small payment) about their love of fandom properties, and the ways in which those properties did or did not love them back. The series had 48 different features, most of which I wrote monthly calls to action for different topics, recruited writers, edited their pieces, and posted to social media.
