Thank you for listening to the Audible Café podcast. With our public employees enduring the fifth week of their forced furlough during a government shutdown resulting from the actions of a despotic and vindictive President Trump, this interview — and my interview with Kyla Bennett from PEER last week — couldn’t be more timely. In today’s episode, I am sharing my interview with Jeff Ruch, Executive Director of PEER - Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility.

Welcome to Audible Café, where we get together to talk about nature, wildlife, wilderness, conservation, environmental protection, climate change, and things related.

Today, I’m airing my interview with Jennifer Browdy, who is a writer, teacher, editor, and coach. She is deeply committed to opening up conversations in person and online that are relevant to our times, and to helping others find expression through their writing.

Memoir is a grassroots sort of genre, inviting anyone and everyone to tease out the significance of the ordinary moments that, day by day, compose a life. Jennifer Browdy

Jennifer’s books include “What I Forgot….and Why I Remembered: A Journey to Environmental Awareness and Activism Through Purposeful Memoir”published in 2017, which was a Finalist in Autobiography/Memoir in the 2018 International Book Awards. Jennifer also wrote the companion book for writers of purposeful memoir, which was a winner of a 2017 Nautilus Silver Award for creative process. Prior to that, she was co-editor with Jana Laiz and Sahra Bateson Brubeck of "Writing Fire: An Anthology Celebrating the Power of Women’s Words." All three of these books were published by Green Fire Press, an independent publishing company that Jennifer runs with her business partner, Jana Laiz. Earlier in her career, Jennifer edited two powerful compilations of women writing resistance.

Her current project - called “Worldwrights” - a term Jennifer coined - will distill “lessons in life and leadership” from 15 inspiring writer-activists who have used writing to right the world, and who have also written memoirs. I can’t wait for that book to come out, because Jennifer has chosen a number of outstanding leaders from social and environmental justice movements for this project, including former President Barack Obama, Jane Goodall, Eve Ensler, Audre Lorde, Wangari Maathai, Rigoberta Menchu, Malidoma Some, Sandra Steingraber, Terry Tempest Williams, John Perkins, and more.

I talked with Jennifer earlier this month while she was still on her summer writing retreat. I appreciate her taking the time to talk with me when that kind of time away from the day-to-day grind is so precious.

You can start exploring Jennifer’s writing and find her workshops and more at her website (see below). She’s offering online workshops and coaching for those of you not located near western Massachusetts.
