I recently completed my master's degree in information science. One of the classes I took was web design. I learned some very basic coding and can now understand more than I did before taking the class. I tried my hand at designing a page for my husband and was pleasantly surprised to learn that there … Continue reading Webpage layout and information design
Brownies and fiber arts and zombies, oh my!
Our March meeting will be Friday, March 30th at 3pm in State Hall 326. This month, in honor of Women’s History Month, we’ll be reading Nnedi Okoafor‘s short story, “Spider the Artist,”which can be found here.
Even if you don’t get a chance to read the story, though, we hope you’ll join us for some fiber arts fun.
Hope to see you there!

At the core of it all…
Nothing would be the same
Namaste in the way
extracting pure consciousness
just to drown in it—
Entire colonies were wiped out—
notes were taken—
the moon used to spew lava
but now it’s dead—
We were an infinite’s last ditch effort
just to show us what we had done—
We worshipped money as a god—
gnawing on nothing;
plastic skin smooth
as a succulent in the sand—
we could no longer keep quiet—
We burned the whole world
to the ground— we apologized
as a formality; we paid out;
we kept going—
The cancer of the last phase
of civilization reaches
into my voice—
my finger tips—
we held hands as we jumped—
we turned into liquid—
spill down the grimy gutter
into the sewer that’s sieved
for bitter water; your river of life
full of garbage, human waste, torsos—

A Girl Could Disappear Like This by Deborah Schwartz

What might these favorite or influential chapbooks suggest about you and your writing?
I often write about motherhood, and the delicate balance between art and the domestic, and I love Sarah Jane Sloat’s chapbook because it addresses, so adroitly, some of the same issues. Erika Lutzner is concerned with how certain circumstances foster violence as well as the invisibility/ vulnerability of children, a subject that I have tried to address in this particular chapbook.
What’s your chapbook about?
This chapbook was written in response to the testimony offered by members of the Survivor Network of those Abused by Priests and…
