Are you a performer of story or listener, both, other? Tell us a bit about yourself...
I perform throughout the Boston area, telling true stories to adult (rather than child) audiences. My stories draw on my experiences as a writing professor, small-town reporter, Midwest transplant, gay woman, and former(-ish) child. I try to tell stories that use humor and earnestness to say something true about the world.
If a performer, please list some key words that will help presenters find you...
