    To know is to love is to protect.  Clearwater, a documentary feature film, aims to get audiences to know, love, and protect the Salish Sea. The Pickford Film Center in Bellingham will be screening excerpts from the work-in-progress on Sunday, December 6 at 5:30pm.  All proceeds from ticket sales will go toward finishing the film. I have been brought on as a producer to the film, and am delighted to be part of this event. Producer/Director Tracy Rector of Longhouse Media ,  Emmy Award winning cinematographer Laura James, and Coast Salish traditional artist Joe Seymour will be present and discuss their work. Clearwater excerpts are now a part of video installation in the permanent collection at the Seattle Art MuseumClearwater is supported by the Sundance Institute, the Tribecca Film Institute, and will be broadcast on PBS (and yes, it still needs funding).  Tickets are $15 and available here.

    Interview by Nicole Melanson

    HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?

    A red plastic typewriter was given to me when I was four.

    WHAT IS YOUR LATEST BOOK OR CURRENT PROJECT?

    Way Elsewhere, a collection of fictional essays will be coming out soon from Lettered Streets Press. I’ve had fun performing at The Moth, events where people tell short, true, first-person stories. And I write for Numéro Cinq, an online magazine, which is great fun. I’m currently drafting my second novel.

    WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOU?

    I am trying to understand some things about people. How to find the love in any situation, or the hurt, the humor, the humanity.

     WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO HEAR MORE FROM?

    I’d like to hear a gorgeous cacophony of voices that have not always been heard widely. There’s room for everyone. We need everyone. There are so many ways of being a person, there are so many ways of telling a story. Women of color, indigenous women, women in poverty, women in abusive relationships, women in cultures where being a woman is not encouraged: these women have voices and important stories.
