I’m excited to talk about my comics class this afternoon! Swipe left for the talk title 🤓
So, I was super excited when @longestshortesttime did a 3-part series on using donor sperm—definitely check it out!—and now I’m super excited that they’ve shared my chapter about donor sperm that’s up at @mutha_magazine. Link’s in my bio 🤗
I’m excited to talk about my comics-based biology class at the Western Michigan Medical Humanities conference this week. I’m also digging this amazing tome of a comic called Climate Changed, by Philippe Squarzoni. I learned a lot about climate change on the plane ride—fascinating science that’s really clear, interwoven with a compelling narrative.
I can’t wait to start reading Mira Jacob’s Good Talk @goodtalkthanks tonight! It’s my reward for finishing a sabbatical application; 1 down, 5 to go. And motivation to finish the last couple of things I need to do tonight. Going into @solidstatedc bookstore made my day 🤗
My comic about IVF was featured in a zine about infertility curated by @alberdaap, @uberbarrensclub and Anna Feigenbaum, along with work by @ejsteinberg, @sarahglidden, @sheilaalexanderart and @jenell.johnson. The zine link is in my bio—check it out to see everyone’s insightful work.
These are some of my favorite pages from this chapter. I enjoyed the challenge of communicating both the feeling of tremendous gratitude while simultaneously reckoning with the grief of loss of an impossible dream. Making these pages made me grieve it again—but being on the other side of trying to have a baby, I feel grateful daily.
I’m excited to share another book chapter that’s up @mutha_magazine today! To read the full chapter for free, check out the link in my bio. I’m proud of this work—and also feeling pretty vulnerable bc I got real real in this work about all the feelings we faced in using donor sperm. My heart goes out to everyone navigating those decisions 💓
I’m actively looking for an agent & publisher, so please reach out if that’s you 🤗 Thanks, everyone, for your support!
