Meet Antoinette Scully
Hi, I’m Antoinette, a Freelance Editor and Professional Reader working with Black, independent and self-published authors looking to elevate their manuscripts and academic papers. Based in Los Angeles, I collaborate with writers and small publishers from around the world to celebrate and share the stories of Black heritage and culture.
I founded Black & Bookish Literary Collective when I discovered Black authors weren’t getting the recognition I thought they deserved. Having grown up in the small, Black town of Eatonville, FL (the hometown of Zora Neale Hurston), the value of Black Storytelling is a part of my personal history.
My work continues where Black visionaries have started- to uplift Black voices from past to present. Launched in 2016, Black & Bookish is the place where our stories and histories matter.
A place for Readers too
Black & Bookish started as a space to post my Year of Black Books reviews but has become a community to support all your bookish needs. You’ll find a variety of content featured on:
Book Reviews and Lists
Cultural pieces on events, Black life, and history
Anti-Racist and Social Justice Resources
Writing tips and Literary Services
Black & Bookish Literary Collective provides a full-service experience into Black Literary Arts.
