invite Deesha

I'm available for readings, speaking engagements, freelance writing and workshops on a variety of topics including writing, race, gender and sex, and co-parenting and divorce. Working together with you or your organization, I can help you create something amazing. Let's get started!

Along with so many amazing writers that I love and admire, I’ll be performing award-winning fiction, memoir, poetry and theatre writing by the incarcerated winners of the PEN America Prison Writing Awards. Tickets are free, but you must RSVP.
