PROJECTS

IMG_3319_edited_edited_edited.jpg

In 2019 I was a visiting scholar at the Center for Women's Health and Human Rights at Suffolk University in Boston, Massachusetts. I worked on the project Our Bodies Ourselves Today, helping build a world-class online platform to provide all kinds of women and girls, trans men and nonbinary folks with the most up-to-date, trustworthy, and inclusive information about our health, sexuality and well-being. Take a look and read about my experience here.

I co-founded The Hearth, a series of literary reading nights in 2016 with local writers (and my good friends) Lauren Butterworth, Alicia Carter and Emma Maguire. At The Hearth, a handpicked mix of local creative thinkers, writers, and performers share thought-provoking readings and offer a brief discussion on their writing process. Then in a Q&A session, we invite our audience to engage with our readers by asking questions and responding to their work. All this in a relaxed environment that features good beers, live tunes and the potential to make some new and excellent friends. After an award-winning Fringe season in 2018, we put The Hearth on hold as various other commitments took precedence, but we're currently working on some exciting developments for 2021. Stay tuned!
