Michelle Brotman

Michelle Brotman is a radical social worker/community organizer, and a staffer at Bluestockings Bookstore. TELL will be her first official storytelling engagement; however, popular consensus holds that Michelle is a magnet for awkward coincidences and absurd encounters–which friends have begun referring to as “Mich-haps”–and she enjoys sharing the sagas of her tragicomedy existence with friends, the internet, and just about anyone who will listen. Michelle is also passionate about cats, knishes, and karaoke.



Katina Douveas has been scrawling writings to the world from pen and paper or napkin or the back of the hand since forever. born in detroit, the poet came to brooklyn to chase the embarkings of literal and literary adventure. katina has pounded pavement in new york city as a jack-of-many-trades for over a decade, and has kept afloat by kidsitting or working as a personal assistant to make free time for passion, spitting poetry, writing, protesting, loving, scheming and dreaming of new heights.
