Interview with (PBS): Are Depression Memes Making You More Depressed? by Gretchen Brown

“Because my account went viral, I really try to be active in the mental health community. If I have a platform like I do, I have to use that responsibly. I don’t want to value push anything onto anyone, except that it’s OK to love yourself, it’s OK to feel sh*tty sometimes, and it’s OK to get help.” –Cori Amato Hartwig

I was featured in (PBS) about @manicpixiememequeen and the rise of mental health memes. Read the article by clicking here!

First Print-Run of "an ode to the sunshine through my bedroom window during springtime"

On April 13, 2019, I printed the first run of my chapbook, an ode to the sunshine through my bedroom window during springtime, which features several prose-poems about springtime, rebirth, and renewal. On April 27, the chapbook sold out! Thank y’all so much.

If you are looking to purchase a copy, fear not—a second print-run is in the works. Updates to come!

Thank you for reminding me of how much love and support constantly surrounds me and my art.

With gratitude,
