Mini tour & more

 

Cagibi Charlotte Burke

 

It’s been an active two months, with readings and collaborations in Edmonton, Brooklyn, Toronto and Montreal. Many thanks to Le Cagibi, LitFest Edmonton (LitFest Alberta was amazing) and Jacq the Stipper/BIZARRE Bushwick for making it rain (literally!!!!)

If you’re in the Toronto area, east end, I will be doing a reading and interview with Danila Botha Vernon at Dora Keogh Irish Pub  from 6-730PM on November 14th. Big shoutout to CHENT for the help @ door/book-sales and intros!

Back from Brooklyn onto Edmonton

sexThe Sex Witch Talent Show in Brooklyn was a romping stomping success. At one point Jacq encouraged audience members to make it rain on the participants they were enjoying and I made 30USD in like two minutes. Can I do it again please? #TRENDALERT

Brooklyn Bound

slut tour 1“Highlighting the provocative intersections between sex, feminism, and witchy women, authors Jacqueline Frances and Kristen J. Sollee are joining forces for the Sex Witch Book Tour this fall. To mark the release of Striptastic! and Witches, Sluts, Feminists: Conjuring the Sex Positive, the Brooklyn-based duo will be hosting Sex Witch Slams and Sex Witch Talent Shows around the country, engaging local artists, witches, and sex workers to join them in celebrating sex positive, femme magic in its many incarnations through intimate readings, rituals, and one-of-a-kind performances.”

Come see some main witches, tomorrow night at BIZARRE Bushwick. Tickets for sale on Eventbrite (snatch these fast; the Toronto event sold out). I will be performing alongside one of my all-time besties (and a main character in my book, Dirty Kids), Jacq the Stripper. She is an enterprising boss and megababe, so don’t miss out, New York! Can’t wait to reunite with ye olde fam. Please enjoy this vintage snap of us witching out in Mass.

Anna Maxymiw, Canlit star extraordinaire.

After attending a particularly inspiring talk from CrippledScholar this week, I have realized how drastically inaccessible my current website is for those who use screen readers. I will be updating/rebuilding this site within the next few months to address this, and will be adding more regular content. Please be patient with my minimal coding + html skills.
