Dirty Barbie and Other Girlhood Tales opens March 23!

Denise Stewart's one-woman storytelling show about the author’s strange southern childhood (is there any other kind?).

With the help of her alter ego, Dirty Barbie, Denise puts the "fun" back in "dysfunctional" as she spins tales on scarlet fever, scotch over ice, and what happens when girls gone wild get even better.

Rated PG-16.

“I wasted all those good-looking years trying to lose weight.” — from the country song that hasn’t been written yet...

Can you write the timeline of your body history? Do you journal?
Please join Denise Stewart for a workshop in memoir/journal writing specifically geared to body image. Using guided writing exercises, this seminar is an afternoon meant to take you (with humor, insight, compassion and cucumber water) through the bad body thoughts and on to a happier, friendlier relationship with your body.
