Surreal Storytelling with Strange Women.

“How long your hair has grown. You could strangle a man in it.”

— Valente

Inspired by strange women and surreal storytellers like Catherynne M. Valente and Aimee Bender, Kate dreamed of creating a platform to showcase voices of the peculiar. Surreal Storytelling with Strange Women was born August 2018.

At each Surreal Storytelling event, four women take the stage to provide an evocative evening seeping with poetry, prose, and personal anecdotes. The setting is soft, yet severe. Demanding, magical, bewitching. Kate strives to shine the light not only on established authors but emerging writers as well.

Surreal Storytelling on Instagram serves as a cauldron of art history and fresh inspiration for all things strange and surreal.
