Anastacia Tolbert is a queer mix or supershero & alphabet fairy godmother dust. Although she isn’t opposed to regular clothing, if she could she’d wear a cape & galoshes at all times. She is a Cave Canem Fellow, Hedgebrook Alumna, Jack Straw Writer, EDGE Professional Writer, VONA alum, Ragdale Alum, creative writing workshop facilitator, documentarian and playwright. She is writer, co-director, and co-producer of GOTBREAST? Documentary (2007): a documentary about the views of women regarding breast and body image. Lately she’s been obsessed with the body (in parts) & the stories it h(old)s. Recently she has begun a year-long theatrical mixed-media project, 9 Ounces: A One Woman Show. 9 Ounces is an unkempt, de-ribbon-ed, narrative braid dangling with crooked parts. It yoga’s its way through the unexpected journey of a queer woman of color’s mid-life a-ha moment and extreme case of takotsubo’s cardiomyopathy. Using the audience as mirror, epiphany and diary, three narratives crochet themselves around evolving frames. Her poetry, fiction & nonfiction have been published widely.
