Another World Episode 2 features a conversation with Kelly Canavan. We talked about activist childhood and parenthood, writing, teaching, and knowing when to step back before burning out.
Kelly Canavan is a mother, activist, and playwright who feels like she never stops yelling at people, except to apologize to everyone else for dropping the ball on yelling at people. Kelly began teaching public high school when she was twenty, but had to retire on disability after a decade. She is the founder of the tiny nonprofit The Accokeek, Mattawoman, Piscataway Creeks Communities Council. Her plays have appeared in the Capital Fringe Festival, Maryland One Act Festival, and showcases in DC and New York. She and her son are vegetarians who live like wolves. Wolves who love anime and hate injustice.
