the problem with being trans is cis people. The problem with being queer is straight people. The problem with being disabled is abled people. The problem with being Black is white people. In other words, prejudice.

Henceforth, I declare your backlash

Henceforth, I declare, and so it shall be: #UBCA #CanLit #USCongress #SupremeToad

Everytime a UBCA signatory or a CanLit gatekeeper pulls a piece of crap, or a GOP senator goes off, or the Congress or Supreme Toad issue nonsense, or damage, another womxn gets their brain-snakes (like angel wings but custom-made for banshee feminists).

Oh yeah. Raquel D’Apice over at the Ugly Volvo.

Field Guide to Dumb Birds

Just in time for spring comes the Field Guide to Dumb Birds. I am bird besotted, but who hasn’t thought “golden crowned dumb shit” to themselves once in a while? I went on the famous Central Park birding walk once, and somehow didn’t fall over a boulder while trying to spy a flash of red in a tree at 800 metres.

Laugh and the whole world laughs with you. I swear it’s true.

“Why I Write” by Meldon Sandrow




We all pretend we don’t know why.

But maybe we do. And maybe this is it?

Being Jane Hamilton

I have had, by now, a long whack at this writing game with some successes and many disappointments–so many of the latter that I stepped away for 8 years (which of course is only a wise move if you never plan to step back in, as I am falteringly doing).  Towards the end of round 1, I wrote this humour piece about my stuttering career.  I love writing humour and this piece reminds me that I don’t do enough of it.  For some reason, when I write it it’s almost always in the 2nd person, a viewpoint I, unlike others, really adore.  I’ve pulled it from Author’s Den, but it first won a prize at Grain.
