Woman's Best Confidant

I love collaboration. I love collaborating with Michael Kimball on the 510 Reading Series. I love collaborating with Betsy Boyd on The Lit Show. I especially love working with so many great editors putting out jmww. And now I'm happy to announce my latest partnership with someone nearest and dearest to my heart, my dog Sophie. Her advice column "Good Human," in which she applies her obedience training to matters of the human kind, is now live.

I guess it's not really an equal collaboration. I mean, she does all the thinking and advicing. I just type her answers in because, as we've learned, her toes are too fat for the keyboard.
