Retweeted by Monica Byrne...and if I apply & don't get it, will never know if gender was factor in decision, bc American theatre = sexism without sexists #newplay...Or not bother, bc they've already demonstrated inattention to gender parity? #newplay Will yall apply, @TheKilroys13?So this is what it's like being a woman in theatre. Do I apply anyway, bc it's important for women to apply?... #newplay@RelentlessAPF: 2/8 women on selection committee, 1/8 artistic advisors, 0/3 board members.

She didn't FB you!?"I want to see the Facebook conversations of the moms of the USS Enterprise.
Retweeted by Monica Byrne@monicabyrne13 that would be pretty impressive. I guess it depends on what kind of people come to your book release parties. ;)
Retweeted by Monica Byrne@JoeBrewing Negotiating, yes. But they're not going to happen at the same time. If they did, that'd be amazing.at the moment am negotiating (1) a book release party, (2) an eyebrow wax appointment, (3) a threesome #writerslife@missykalliope @mouserobot Whoa, never heard of it.
