Play On Words is kicking off 2018 with a special show, Activists Unite, at Cafe Stritch on January 17. In summer 2017, we partnered with San Jose’s Flash Fiction Forum, along with writer and professor Maria Judnick, and graphic designer, artist and writer Peter Caravalho, to create Activate, our activist chapbook. We are delighted to read selections from the forthcoming book at our January show. Hope to see you there!

writer. instructor. editor. doodler. er.
I'm at work on my first book, a collection of linked short stories that follows a community of expatriates living on the southern coast of Spain.
I care about stuff. Like curing type 1 diabetes. And marriage equality. And rights for immigrants. And public radio. And espanol. And Frank O'Hara and Jennifer Egan and Federico Garcia Lorca and Tony Kushner. You know, cool stuff.
I make postcards that are also stories.
Sometimes I read stories and poems out loud.
Sometimes I go to conferences.
You can find my short stories, essays, poems and flash fictio in a variety of places in print and online. If you Google really hard, you might find the two short radio pieces I produced on a badass NPR affiliate in San Francisco.
