Bawdy Storytelling

Ever broken the rules as a teenager and then spent your entire life having absolutely no regrets about it? Love warrior and community connector Julie Barr becomes a camp counselor at 16, excited to spend the entire Summer drinking and partying with her friends. But the powers-that-be forbid fraternization between campers and counselors, and Miller the ManChild proves too tempting. Plus Dixie posits: what’s a Mother’s Day birthday without a full-on meltdown?

My forthcoming Substack ’The Dixie Ramble' is at #Subscribe


What is Substack?

"What is Substack" is a question with a deceptively simple answer. Yes, it's an email newsletter platform (made up of text, audio, video, etc). But it's also much more than that. Substack is known for its hands-off approach to censorship. While there are still some publishing guidelines (no porn, hate speech or harassment, for example), the platform’s lack of gatekeeping has attracted both ground-breaking journalists and some seriously controversial writers”.

(My Substack launch has been delayed by my life’s latest calamity, but it’ll start soon)
