I'm Speaking at Creative Mornings in Oakland!

UPDATE: Watch my speech below!

***Listen to my podcast about anxiety***

This Friday, Jan 26th I will be speaking about living with anxiety challenges and mental health for Creative Mornings. I HATE anxiety. Hate it. But my love for stopping mental health stigma by sharing my story is stronger. I'll also talk about facing our normal, everyday anxieties.

Registration opens this Monday at 11am. They go quick so make sure you sign up ASAP.

Check Me Out at Beast Crawl Literary Festival in Oakland

Beast Crawl is one of the largest, if not the largest, literary festival in Oakland. It's kind of like a pub crawl where you hop from one bar to another with group of people. During Beast Crawl, you hop from different locations in Downtown Oakland to listen to writers read their work. If you've ever been to Litquake, they're very similar except this one has Oakland, East Bay flavor.

I'm excited to be reading with Liminal, a feminist/womanist writing space in Oakland founded by Gina Goldblatt. We are going to break shit down and keep it real about womanhood and gender with our storytelling and poetry. What you get on this blog is what you'll get from me in person, but even better.

So come out on Saturday, July 16th at Darling's Elixr in Downtown Oakland, 6:30-7:30pm. And the best part is Beast Crawl is free! You get to hear some of the most amazing writers, in person, for free. I hope to see you there.
