The Sadie Hawkin’s Ball & Literary Brothel was a great success! We blew up a shit ton of balloons, ate much candy, met neighbors, blasted hip hop and danced like we were in a club (which attracted the neighbors, and I am quite glad it did, as come to find out, we have some good-looking neighbors…)
We are currently taking submissions for LIMINAL’s December Showcase: Baring & Breaking. Interpret as you will, within the larger context of Feminism\Womanism. (Baring it all? Baring your teeth? Baring witness? Breaking the cycle? Breaking open? Breaking some fool’s head?)

Brenda Usher-Carpino’s Art of the Dramatic Dialogue Workshop is halfway through. I have now confirmed that writing just dialogue is as hard for me as I suspected it might be, but Brenda is a patient and thorough teacher. The tentative plan is to have students read their scenes at the showcase on December 5th. Stay tuned for details…
Also in December…A Holiday Letter-Writing Workshop with Gutwrench Press…dates TBA…December 12, LIMINAL founder, Gina Goldblatt will be at East Bay Alternative Book & Zine Fest during the day and performing in an Aerial Silks show at Aerial Artique in SF that night.
