SPEAKING

I am available to speak on panels and lead workshops for people of all ages on media, comics, history, and gender issues. Get in touch!

To get a feel for what I sound like, check out the July 2013 episode of WBEZ’s Nerdette podcast: “Bitch Magazine’s online editor Sarah Mirk stops by to nerd out about making and reading comics, her new Sex From Scratch project, feminism myths and more.”
