See what I did there? Because the event is over?
All failed attempts at humor aside, Sister Spit: The Next Generation was fabulous! The multimedia presentation took place in Hoff Theatre at the University of Maryland, College Park and featured many different artists, including a former teenage dominatrix. I will be perfectly honest with you, I’m extremely awkward and was a little at a loss on how to make conversation with a former dominatrix (it’s hard to believe they exist in real life). Good thing Shawna Kenney was so nice. Luckily, she answers some FAQ’s about her former lifestyle in her memoir, which I started reading at the merch table and am adding to the top of my summer reading list…
Jenna Brager aka J Bee was in the house and introduced the group. Jenna really helped get the ball–or rather, van–rolling on this project during her tenure. We were so happy to have her back on campus (well, back on the Terpoets stage since she actually has a grown-up job on campus). In addition to being a talented creative writer, Jenna is also a gifted scholar, artist, and graphic designer. She did the artwork for that amazing Sister Spit flier (hopefully you guys grabbed one on your way out but we’ll also have them at our next event, on April 19th) that Marinaomi tweeted (that’s MY hand in the picture, everyone!) & Shawna blogged. Jenna’s artwork is also available on her etsy site and will be at the DC Zinefest this summer, which she is planning. Go check out her zines, it’ll be the best $2.00 + shipping and handling you ever spend!
