Friday night after work, we packed up The Girlpond Shop, and drove up north 2 hours from Minneapolis, Minnesota to Duluth, Minnesota. We had no idea what to expect. All we knew was...we had to be there. In the end, we were welcomed...we were challenged...we were shook...we were enlightened...we were changed. We are thrilled to say we are carrying Adina Burke's poetry books in our shop, and she read poetry at our last Sapphic Night of Hygge & Healing! We are also carrying The Northwoods Witch's "Pocket Potions" in our shop! We were already familiar with Soul Reflect - and are excited to say she will be the featured performer for our next Sapphic Night of Hygge & Healing coming up this month. All of the women we discovered were amazing...each doing amazing different things. We were fortunate enough to be in a position to grab a few workshop leaders, vendors, performers, and organizers for brief interviews. We wish we could have talked to all the participants, but there was so much going on! Please forgive us if you were not included. Also, we encourage you to visit the FEmn Fest web page and read the mission statement, the different workshop descriptions, etc.
And now...without further ado - we give to you our Femn Fest 2017 Sampler. We encourage you to take some time and...in the sonorous words of Priscilla Momah: "Listen".*
