AMY MAE BAXTER
FOUNDER / EDITOR
Amy is an Editorial Assistant at Penguin Random House, working across Fiction and Non-Fiction, and is pleasantly surprised that other people seem to be as interested in Black, Asian, and marginalised community book reviews as she is. Her dream is that books by marginalised community writers will become so ubiquitous Bad Form is made redundant. She is unsure if that will ever be realised.
Please send me your fiction and poetry; or if you are from a publishing company or from a potential partnership.
SOPHIE MARIE NIANG
DEPUTY FEATURES EDITOR
Sophie Marie Niang is a Black feminist researcher whose work focuses on blackness in Europe, the idea of Afropeanity, and more generally the intersection of race, class and gender. She is also the host of The Big Sleep, a serial podcast exploring various themes and social issues through an intersectional feminist lens, in a positive, casual and (hopefully) accessible way. Finally, she is a proud believer in the beauty of books, the magic of food and the power of disco!
Please send me your feature pitches (interviews and essays), especially things including intriguing conversations, feminist voices, and writings informed by anything outside of the Pale, Male and Stale tradition of literature.
DEPUTY REVIEWS EDITOR
Having been asked “where are you really from” most of her life, Morgan hopes to one day publish a book on racial identity and the sense of cultural belonging felt by mixed-race individuals. If she’s not working through her ever-growing book list, you can find her writing or obsessing over music, sausage dogs and food.
Please send me any pitches for book and poetry reviews, including review essays that raise important questions, writing that both educates and engages the reader.
Emma is an English grad currently living in South London, working in marketing, and trying to never hear the phrase ‘diversity and inclusion’ again.
Since joining the few other brown English students in the Postcolonial seminar room and sharing what felt like a collective sigh of relief, she's been on the lookout for the rare spaces which can match such a precious vibe. Her dream is to one day recreate this in a UK-based Black and brown women’s ski club.
