About Sheena C. Howard

Join me on my journey to creating stories that make people uncomfortable (Think superhero's with Down Syndrome, fictions books about same-sex domestic abuse, Black female leads doing things that we don't see on TV or in the media, etc) . We can learn from everyone's story, not just the narratives that the media and Hollywood like to portray. Just because someone else's story makes you uncomfortable, doesn't mean you cant learn from it. Often times we find inspiration in the lives of people who are demonstrably different than us. That leads me to why I am on Patreon, asking you to support me on a monthly basis...

Time is money and I need more TIME. I didnt actually consider myself a writer until years after I had actually been a published, successful writer. I had written for the Huffington Post, scripted a successful documentary, edited and authored an Eisner award winning book and co-wrote a comic book called Superb about a teenage superhero with Down Syndrome. But I still didnt actually consider myself a writer. I didnt feel as though I lived up to the title. To me, that's a big title, not to be taken lightly. I didnt feel as though I was good enough. I didnt feel as though I earned the title - writer. Now that I am embracing my identity as a writer, I am determined to tell different stories. Stories of teenage superheroes with Down Syndrome, stories about same-sex domestic violence, stories about little known Black civil rights leaders and more. I can only do that, if I can buy myself TIME. As I type this, I am simultaneously working on:

A graphic novel for the Philadelphia public school system (with Temple University/ PEW)
A nonfiction book about psychological themes in the film Black Panther (with BenBella Press)
A graphic narrative about same-sex domestic abuse (Self-published) and its screen adaptation
And more!

All three of these are scheduled to drop in 2021. I am working on these big projects in conjunction with being a single-mom and working a full-time job. There isnt enough TIME in the day. 

Your monthly support will help me ...

Fund projects, instead of working overtime to fund them myself.
Cut down on overtime at work, giving me more TIME to write and create.
Significantly cut down on traveling for speaking engagements, giving me more TIME to write.
Afford the co-working space I use to create.
Attend writing sessions/ workshops to upgrade my writing skills.
Afford editors, artists, cost of production, etc.
Hire an assistant  to scale my business and writing reach
Hire someone who can promote my content on social media - this takes up hours of my TIME each week. Even setting up Patreon takes time away from writing. 

To keep pumping out fiction and non-fiction stories you love to indulge in, check out my latest project for the Philadelphia public school system, here.

I will give you behind-the-scenes content from works-in-progress, drafts of works-in-progress, including screen play drafts. I will post videos of me answering fan questions, blog posts offering writing, social media and PR tips only accessed by my patrons, never before-seen rough drafts of scripts from previous and current projects, updates on big announcements, opportunities for patrons to name characters in my stories and more!

Help me see the dream through. Help me buy more TIME … Thank you.

Love,
Sheena
