After one officially scheduled reading, we conspired to convene again in a farmhouse kitchen to open even more bottles of wine, lay out more plates of food, and continue readings new pieces until well past midnight. Then they spend time with the authors and in discussions about writing and life.
By the last day, they have pages and pages of new writing and read bravely in front of an uproarious audience. Abi Tschetter, who said she had been suffering from a two-year writers block, spent one craft session writing furiously in her notebook and frowned when Ruth Ozeki called the group to the next exercise. The audience clapped, moaned, and cheered throughout the readings, some authors onstage for the first time ever, some published veterans.
Kelsye Nelson is co-founder of Writer. In her copious spare time, she teaches nonprofits how to use social media, travels with her daughter, walks her giant dog endlessly around city blocks and sometimes, possibly, even writes. This piece was originally featured at The Feminist Wire and can be accessed here. The questions he contemplates peacefully from a Maui beach house overlooking the Pacific, I contemplate on my dusty Tucson patio. So it came as somewhat of a surprise that I found so much of his wisdom relatable and true.
This is unflinching love in the face of oblivion. What a wonderfully broad and inclusive introduction to queer theory. I found this really fascinating, even when I disagreed with a specific point here and there. It'll certainly be a jumping-off point for other readings, many of which are cited in this book!
Review of ‘Southern Sin’
John Waters is nothing if not consistent. He always delivers exactly what we expect from him and, if you're a fan, exactly what you want. This reads exactly like his spoken word work. Hilarious if stubbornly outdated. I read this after reading her second book, From Here to Eternity , which I loved. I liked this one even more. This one is about the death industry, yes, but it's also about the individual struggle to accept mortality.
Doughty gets extremely personal, seeming at once one-of-a-kind and deeply relatable.
Sometimes being a kid is hard. Wouldn't you rather be an armadillo or a worm? This book, full of beautiful and stylistic art, explores what every kid has felt at some point. This sweet and poignant book manages to make something as painful and amorphous as loss into something both relatable and hopeful. A beautiful book for anybody— of any age— that has dealt with loss. Be ready to cry!
I don't know if I want more to grow up to be Sissy Hankshaw or Bonanza Jellybean, who are just two of the incredible characters in this story that takes place somewhere between mid-century America and the strangest corners of your dreams. If you haven't had the pleasure of reading this joyfully bizarre book, it's high time.

Reading this and taking in the beautiful illustrations is a meditation. The theory is good thought exercise, even if you find yourself disagreeing on some points. Witchbody will bring more beauty and consideration into your life. Gross, embarrassing, harrowing, and absolutely gripping. This book will earn your love and then traumatize you terribly. Be warned. The language is natural, the characters people I knew in my own childhood.
