Living a vagabond life means it's pretty easy for me to show up somewhere for a talk, workshop, reading, or to do some art. Want to learn how to make those cool Sharpie cards? How about a screenwriting workshop from a gal who founded and ran a film festival for 9 years? Need a fun reading by an author who likes engaging with audiences? Looking for a good graphic lit presentation/exhibition with images as well as words? Drop me a line using the contact form above.

"It is a very serious thing to be a funny woman"

Feminist humor is not an oxymoron. All female humor is feminist, because all female humor takes over the body of the audience/reader when it triggers a laugh. It isn't just different in that a woman is making the jokes. Women's humor in general has a different shape from the guys' in what I call the "multiple-orgasm model" that is as different from Aristotle's as lipstick is from a hockey stick. (title quote by the 19th Century humorist,  Frances 'Berry" Whitcher)
