Penelope Dane can't quit Louisiana. She has work forthcoming in "This Assignment is So Gay: LGBTQ Poets on the Art of Teaching" and "My Body My Health: Women's Stories." When she isn't writing her dissertation, she works on her novel, "Clay Memory." She blogs about what she and her partner are cooking and what oppression they are fighting at bikaandsnowglobe.blogspot.com. She would love to run an Exploring the Lesbian Perspective workshop for you.
