Issue #25: Local comedian discusses her workshop for funny women

Top banner.png

Greetings once again, dear Capital Women readers! First, I would like to begin this newsletter with apologies for only providing one newsletter and podcast episode in the month of October; typically, Capital Women publishes on the first and third Monday of every month, but in October, it was only on the first. The delay was due to me coming down with a pretty terrible cold, but I’m all better now (save for the occasional cough), and I’m happy to provide the latest news you should read and upcoming events you should keep an eye on. When it comes to the podcast, get excited for an interview with local comedian Nicki Fuchs, who discusses The Clitorati, a safe, creative workshop for up-and-coming, female-identifying comedians. Thanks for subscribing, and expect more in two weeks!
