JESTINE WARE is a QPOC grant writer at the human rights organization Heartland Alliance by day and stellar freelance editor, writer, and writing coach by night. She’s edited kidlit titles Madam C. J. Walker Builds a Business, Ada Lovelace Cracks the Code, Dr. Wangari Maathai Plants a Forest, and Junko Tabei Masters the Mountains. Her comics, poems, stories, and activities have been featured in Ladybug, Babybug, Spider, Cobblestone, Muse, Click, Cicada Magazine, and the Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls podcast. In every project Jestine undertakes, she’s passionate about supporting those who don’t see themselves represented accurately—particularly communities of color, LGBTQIA+ folks, and people with disabilities. Originally from New York, Jestine traveled around the country searching for home before settling in Chicago with her two feathered children, Owl and Sunny. In her spare time, she’s a book aficionado, comic book enthusiast, gardener, avid puzzler, and dabbler in writing afrofuturist science fiction, fairy tales, and nonfiction short stories.
