Sometimes it starts to bug me that my obsession with personal storytelling can be so devoid of, well, other people.

So I always welcome an opportunity to hold a six-word slam or check out a great reading series. Combine that with my admiration for Emily Gould and my all-out love for Graphic Therapy artist Emily Steinberg, and I’m quite disappointed I won’t be in Philadelphia on Tuesday.
