I was so excited to be a guest on the great SSR podcast, standing for “Shit She Read” as a riff off Silent Sustained Reading time in school. I picked one of my all-time favorite books, LITTLE WOMEN, and truly enjoyed reading it for the first time in about 15 years. I loved speaking with Alli Kosik and I think this podcast is just a delight. I highly recommend listening to any episode that touches on one of your childhood favs.
I was so honored to be included on this list in Paste Magazine of the top fifteen humorists writing today! The other writers on the list are wonderful and also include some of my former students, which feels great as a teacher. Check it out here.
The awesome writer Julie Vick interviewed me for the VERY GOOD website The Millions. I love the title they chose, and it was cool to talk about my journey as a writer and process with Julie. Read it below!
I co-founded the festival with my pals and great writers/producers James Folta and Tulio Espinoza, and it’s this weekend March 22-24 in NYC! Please read an interview with us for Vulture on why we founded the festival, check out tickets and events on the festival site here, and come have some fun with us (and get some merch!).
On Sunday, I’ll be moderating this panel on writing, selling, and promoting the humor book with a great panel of authors, agents, booksellers, and more. It’s at Magnet Theater, and you can buy a ticket here. If you can’t make it this year, then plan to come in 2020 - we’re hoping to make this an annual thing!
In response to the *very disgusting* comments from Florida State Rep Jose Oliva calling pregnant people “host bodies” I wrote up this lil topical baby. What if the really horrifying thing was…host bodies being treated like human beings?? Read it on McSweeney’s here!
