At the end of the day, what Lashelle loves most is providing the space and opportunity for oft-unheard people to speak. She enjoys curating thought-provoking collections of work and allowing marginalized voices to shine.


Watermelanin Magazine (COMING SOON)

Lashelle is the founding editor of an upcoming literary magazine set to take the world by storm. Watermelanin is the brain-child of a need for more marganilized voices in the literary realm and a dissatisfaction with the inclusivity of traditional literary magazines. 

Quail Bell Magazine

As the Non-Fiction Editor of Quail Bell Magazine's "The Real", Lashelle has been focused on uplifting the voices and art of traditionally underrepresented people. With the blessing of Quail Bell Magazine's founding editor, Christine Stoddard, Lashelle has been able to bring more voices of color to the table.

Lashelle's first foray into the world of actively inclusive art curation, Amendment Literary Journal served as the catalyst for her artistic and journalistic pursuits. She served as an editor for two years and as Senior Executive Editor for one before running off into the wide unknown. Click below to see more of the 2013 issue she curated.
