Happy holidays and a little news

I hope everyone has had a good holiday season and is ready for a new year that will hopefully be full ofoptimism, opportunities and positive change for everyone. 

2015 came to a close with some sad news about a remarkable, unique San Francisco writer, Justin Chin, who died just before Christmas after suffering a massive stroke a week earlier. I wrote about the heartbreaking news for the SF Weekly as his family made the decision to take him off life support. I got to know Justin's work after seeing him perform at Writers With Drinks, where he was asked to compose a story that combined horror and erotica. His resulting story was gross, funny and even a little bit sexy -- just like his poems and prose. There won't be another like him. 

Just after the new year, I will be part of a panel at aQuarius Records Jan. 6 called "Sexual Violence & Misogyny in Literary & Lyrical Frameworks," moderated by Decibel Magazine editor Justin M. Norton and including panelists Daniel Butler and Leila Abdul-Rauf of Vastum, feminist scholar Brad Nelson, psychoanalyst Jason Wallin and Vivek Venkatesh, a social psychologist from Concordia University. It promises to be interesting and intense. To find out more, check out the event information on Facebook
