It’s December Already?

This morning, I slept past six a.m. and now I need to do about a million loads of laundry. My ears are ringing in this quiet house. Today is the kind of day that makes people become snow birds and fly off to the desert where I live.

An update of some happenings in my wee literary art life:

My third post on DIY MFA went live this week: The Art of the Graphic Memoir: New Book by Indie Cartoonist Tom Hart.

I joined the ranks of local thought provokers: Interview on VoyagePhoenix with some of my hybrid artwork.

I also joined the Sonoran Small Publishers collective, attending the inaugural meeting at Wasted Ink. Excited to be a part of a grass roots collective devoted to indie publishing, art, words and community.

I was on a panel at NonfictioNow with Nicole J. Georges (her work is awesome!), an international conference that was held this year in Phoenix. My book also joined the author collective of books table. I also read from my teen journal for the diary bingo karaoke event, which was so much more fun than living in that silly moment when I thought I wanted to have my high school boyfriends baby.

Author Collective organized by writer/professor Jennifer Sinor

I just finished an amazing chapbook workshop, led by Ariel Gore, in the Literary Kitchen. My chapbook, Water Marks, is at the printers now! It’s a hybrid collection of words and images, my musings on water.

PHX Zine Fest 2019 was awesome!

My friend Sari helped me table, which made the whole day fun.

As was Meet Your Literary Community

Tabling at Meet Your Literary Community. BTW I like this shirt. And Sari helped me again!

I did a workshop for Off the Page at Wasted Ink Zine Distro, sharing ways music can be a catalyst for drawing/painting. Here is the music of trees work from the workshop.

we listened to music inspired by trees and made these.
