About Tehlor Kay Mejia

Hi, I'm Tehlor Kay Mejia, thanks for visiting.

Most of you probably found me through twitter (@tehlorkay) where I'm outspoken about Latinx/Chicanx issues, media representation, and other issues surrounding oppression and privilege in a changing (and sadly, unchanging) world. I'm also an essayist, a poet, and a young adult writer with sky-high dreams about doing my part to change the world. My debut novel - When We Set the Dark on Fire, is forthcoming from Katherine Tegen Books/HarperCollins.

Here, I hope to create a space where I can raise awareness about issues affecting my community, share the things that inspire me, discuss writing and craft with other wordsmiths, and receive a little support for my practical needs. Reward tiers include advice about writing craft, musings on the state of marginalized representation in publishing, snippets from works in progress, and other things that might be helpful for writers both established and aspiring. 

Know, though, that when you click that pledge button, at any level, you're not just getting the promised reward, you're supporting original content and giving me the opportunity to do the work I love. So thank you, for considering, for pledging, for listening. I hope you find what you're looking for here.

Rewards are listed below, and all patron content is posted by the second Monday of every month. Thanks again for your interest and your support.

$26 of $200 per month
$200 a month will make a huge dent in my monthly expenses, allowing me to spend more time on my creative work!
