Host Stina French! Stina French hails from North Carolina, and if you look closely, you can still see the welts from the Bible Belt. After a stint in San Francisco, she joined the faculty of Red Rocks Community College in the Denver area. She is working on a mystery novel, Mistress Immaculate’s Murder Most Mildew, a magic-realist memoir-as-revision of the Biblical Flood story, and has a finished hybrid/experimental collection of pieces called Hope You Like Dick: An Erotic, Creative, Choose-An-Adventure Flash Memoir. She has featured at the Podeo, F-Bomb, At The Inkwell, The Running of the Gays, and Punketry. Her work has appeared in Punch Drunk Press. She squeals like a pig and she means it. Find her on Facebook at Stina French, Ink or at Voicing the Body: Mistress Immaculate’s Blog.
