Make Your Voice Heard: The Intersection of Craft, Creativity, and Activism

This October, author-maker-artists Leanne Prain, Kim Werker, and I will be traveling together for a North American Book Tour!

Arsenal Pulp Press and Sasquatch Books are partnering to send us to 12 venues across the US and Canada. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear us in a paneled discussion (moderated by a local artist/maker) or join us for a hands-on workshop!

Kim Werker will be touring in support of Make it Mighty Ugly: Exercises and Advice for Getting Creative Even When It Ain’t Pretty (September 2014).
