Recently I’ve been able to do more of what I love: meaning, I have been watching a lot of film and occasionally writing about it.
I was invited to read at Chicago Lady Lit Live event Miss Spoken on the subject of Gossip. It was a scary one for me, as I spoke more openly about sexual assault than I ever have before. It was also one of the easiest, funniest events I have ever been a part of.
I’m hoping to read at more events, and have been hard at work submitting poetry and essays again. I will be publishing my essay here at some point, but until then, attend the upcoming show on “Rites of Passage” in Chicago if you can!
