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.

Through his publishing company, Punch Drunk Press, he hosts several events around the city including Punketry!
