March 15, 2021, guest blog post for Farewell Partners on What It Means to Write Your Own Obituary


April 5, 2020, letter to the editor of the NYT about the importance of advance directives and talking about death. 


Death Positive DC is on the local TV news! Watch this segment on WUSA9: An obituary workshop participant talks about her profound experience with this writing exercise and I talk about the death positive movement, end of life doulas, and why I do what I do.  

I was on Sunday Sequence, BBC Northern Ireland's Sunday morning radio program. To listen to my segment, go to 1:16:48. I talk to the host about the death positive movement and writing your own obituary.


My "Write Your Own Obituary" workshop is featured in an article in The Guardian (it includes interviews with three past participants). You can read it here. 

I was a guest on the Kojo Nnamdi Show on WAMU 88.5 on Feb. 5, 2020. I talked about death cafes and the importance of talking about death and dying. You can listen (or read the transcript) here

Death Positive DC is in the Washington Post! Check out this short video and article about the death positive movement, death cafes, and my obit workshop.
