Fainting Couch Feminists Episode 8: She's Just So "Her": Live with Katie-Ellen Humphries!

Live from the back room of R&B brewing, comedian Katie-Ellen Humphries joins host Mica Lemiski to chat about the different roles we perform—whether on stage, through our art, or in our everyday lives. Also included: how NOT to deal with sexism in a writer's room, and why "I don't change for anyone" is not actually a very cool attitude.

Volunteer at Growing Room 2018

Growing Room: A Feminist Literary Festival (March 1-4, 2018) is returning for the second year and once again seeking volunteers! Get involved behind-the-scenes and help us make this literary event a success. We are looking to fill roles including Venue Assistants, Event Assistants, and Active Listeners. All experience and skill levels welcome. The deadline to apply is midnight on Thursday, February 15, 2018, but shifts will be filled on a first come, first served basis.

Growing Room Festival 101 for Procrastinators

In the words of our Festival Director, Arielle Spence, “Growing Room is a celebration, a protest, a reflection, a re-envisioning, a gathering, a question, and a dream. It is the culmination of forty years of hard work and creativity and the start of a new era.” If you're eager to attend but uncertain where to begin, we understand; when the festival was conceptualized two years ago, we did not foresee organizing a five-day festival with twenty-five panels, workshops, readings, and special events, involving over fifty emerging and established writers and artists.
