Since 2000 I have been writing articles, interviews, and reviews for Sequential Tart, which describes itself as:
a Web Zine about the comics industry published by an eclectic band of
women; 2. a publication dedicated to providing exclusive interviews,
in-depth articles and news, while working towards raising the awareness
of women's influence in the comics industry and other realms.In
2001 I became a staff writer, meaning I write something for Tart every
month. I especially enjoy this work because in this venue my writing
can teeter between the academic and the popular, I interview and write
about people whose art and/or writing I enjoy, and I can interact
directly with my readers through the Tartsville
message boards, which allow discussion to grow out of articles and
continue in a collaborative way I find exciting and inspirational.
