Hi, I’m Eileen, Welcome!

Below are some current links from my social media. To read my blog, go here. Thank you and have a lovely day!

We Feel We Worry We Refuse: A Community Zine – Jason Magabo Perez taught a series of free writing workshops called the Artifact Labs during the Spring 2020 at the start of the pandemic. “Here are raw and urgent and meditative poems, journal entries, letters, paintings, drawings, and collages of dignified rage, solidarity, longing, possibility, prayer, and hope. This community zine is humbly offered as but one record of our times. We keep fighting. We keep resisting. We keep passing the good word.”

I have a poem included, “We Refuse” and I was thrilled to see it was part of the publication title. Ecstatic and utterly honored.

Black Revolutionary Theatre Workshop Auction – I donated three junk journals I hand made + an orange cigar box full of ephemera for my friend’s auction. Check out the catalog and bid for awesome stuff from February 15 – March 1!

Anticipate-A-Day proposal – Hosted by Shadow Traffic and sponsored by RetroViewer, it’s a bespoke image experience delivered by the classic toy known as a ViewFinder. Through this linked proposal submission form, they will chose 11 individuals who will create an ‘image reel’ of 14 slides (2 reels of 7 slides each) and it must be participatory. FAQ and additional details & requirements can be found here.

I’m excited to be their patron and provide funding for more participants while covering shipping costs, plus creating my own reel. I always wanted to make my own reel and I could never think of a better way to do it.
