Friends! Supporters! L.M. and I are running a Kickstarter campaign to help finance the second issue of The Corners of Their Mouth: A Queer Food Zine. Proceeds will help us pay our contributors and cover the cost of printing with our favorite local risograph studio. The campaign is running for one month. I hope you’ll help us make this zine a reality! Thank you!
Hey friends! I’m tabling at two events in Seattle this fall. Please come visit me!
Fall for Zines! at Fred Wildlife Refuge: Sunday, September 23, 6:00-10:00 p.m.
“A pop-up zine fair organized by Kate Berwanger of Swerve Zine Library, featuring some of the PNW’s zine and comic community. Drink drinks, read zines, enter our raffle to win a cornucopia of small press publications. Good times for all 21+.”
GeekGirlCon 2018: Saturday, October 27 and Sunday, October 28
“GeekGirlCon sets up an inclusive environment in the heart of downtown Seattle to celebrate every geek and honor the legacy of women contributing to science and technology; comics, arts, and literature; game play and game design; and beyond.” This con is highly accessible and inclusive and a great intro for folx who have never been to a convention before!
(Will update once I know our exact table location in the Exhibitors Hall).
I’m honored to be a contributor to Comestible: Issue 7. L.M. and I wrote complimentary essays on our personal culinary landscapes: the foods we grew up with, the early lessons about gender we learned through food, and the ways that we’ve re-examined, rejected or reclaimed our hometown dishes. I talk about my childhood, carob chips and Tofu Pups, the 1970s feminist publication “Country Women” and the back-to-the-land movement in northern California–both what it accomplished and whom it failed.
You can find Comestible Journal at many a fine independent bookstore, or on their website.
