“Jaym Gates was exactly what our organization needed in a PR officer — someone who knows the PR field and knows how to get attention — the right kind of attention — for our members, events and initiatives.”
Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America
Hi, I’m Jaym, an opinionated, bull-headed, overly-invested communications manager and editor in the science fiction and fantasy worlds. I put a lot of time in front of the mast, having started as an intern at Fantasy Magazine when I was 20, and as the Public Relations Manager for the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America when I was 23. It’s been a few years now, and I’m a lot more experienced, a lot better, and a lot more jaded.
I recently took a leave of absence from the front lines, stepping out of fandom and distancing myself from fighting against the misogyny, racism, and discrimination that’s trying to tear the industry apart. I haven’t regretted it a bit. These days, I mostly edit anthologies, work on publicity for long-time clients, and write.
If you’re looking for a writer, please feel free to get in touch with me. If you’re looking for publicity, feel free to get in touch with me, although I’ll likely just steer you towards one of my lovely colleagues.
Anything else, or if you just want to say hi, just look me up on Twitter.
