How to Be Relentless

Hi there!
Welcome to my blog. I write about feminism and empowerment, literature and performance for social and personal change, the powerful effects of language, anti-violence work, recovery as it relates to mental health and eating disorders, occasional lgbt issues, as well as the vicissitudes of being a family history researcher interested in hidden stories and learning about whole lives of ancestors rather than dates and lineage alone.

These are all issues that come up in my interdisciplinary creative practice. I am a creative writer, a storyteller for adults (yes, the rated R variety) and maker of installations. Current projects are Open Letters to the Men of Craigslist about mania and sex, Alison Failure a memoir about historical family mental illness and a series of poems about eating disorders called Mantle Me.

Kick back and take a look around. Feel free to drop me a line or leave a comment on posts as they catch your eye.

Warmly,
Alison
