Projects

I am part of a few projects and organizations, all of which I am extremely proud.

Journal of Dungeoneering for Hip and Attractive Professionals

I started JoD4HAP with my friend and former classmate Alex G. Friedman. We wanted a space to analyze and celebrate nerd culture. Our expertise is various, so he’s focusing on tabletop role playing games, and I am doing more with real-play podcasts and nerd fashion.

We are looking for submissions for Issue 4 right now. Check it totally out.

Podcast: Literally 2 Cents About Content!

Literally 2 Cents About Content! is a podcast about content mills and the broader concept of labeling all creative work “content.” Why do we call everything anyone produces “content”? How does this “content” frame affect us as content consumers? And what types of conditions do content creators labor under?

This is a project I’m working on with my friend Alex, who I met while working at a content mill. Lots of good stuff planned here. Find us on Apple Podcasts, Substack, and more.

002b: Content algorithms: We’re the tools and Google is the operator Literally 2 Cents About Content!

Alex and Liz talk about algorithms and how they select and serve content, with an extended riff on an academic paper about bureaucracy (don't worry! we make it easy to understand).

Streaming: Katryam / Internet Gramma

I have been streaming some video games and random thoughts on Twitch. It’s enjoyable, and gives me a set time to play games, something I love doing but don’t have much time for anymore.

Check me out on Tuesdays as I plod my way through The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword!

roam

One of my very favorite things to do is read and publish poetry. This project, roam literature, is an independent online literary magazine devoted to helping new and established writers alike find a home for their words.

Our first issue went live in September 2019, and it’s full of beautiful, tragic, exuberant writing. I’m extremely proud and grateful these writers decided to entrust us with their words, and I hope one day to return.
