START INTERNAL RECORDER
Welcome to my inner dialogue, thanks for coming out tonight.
I’m Ingrid, your host for the evening.
We’re so excited to host my lack of self-worth in conversation with my imposter syndrome for the release of my debut breakdown collection of “sighs and the incessant need for napping.”
First, I want to give you a peek at some of my upcoming anxieties that might be of interest to you—
*On Tuesday, March 3rd at 7:30 p.m., I’m hosting and urging my agoraphobia to go vote and do her taxes.
*On Wednesday, March 4th at 2:15 p.m., I will need to mentally prepare myself to deal with people for 8 hours, feed myself, smile, piss, shit, and invest my energy for small talk with people I’d much rather ignore.
For more info check my blog, http://www.notesofadirtyyoungwoman.com, or grab one of my books available through a simple google search.
Order of events – introduction, reading, discussion, Q&A, crying.
Please silence your cell phones.
Ingrid M. Calderón-Collins is the author of 9 books and the incredibly anxious hostess of “They’re Just Words,” a poetry reading series currently as a circus sideshow act, perhaps at a city near you! She is the product of civil war, molestation, rape, cold parents, dead siblings, boleros, drug addiction, self-mutilation, high functioning anxiety, BPD, yucca frita, love, migraines, laughter, Mormonism, hope, forgiveness, marriage and coffee. She never finished college and has made it a point to teach herself as much as she can in conjunction to learning from those she respects. She encourages you to shop at “indie bookstores!”
