Poet, playwright and children’s book author Nicole Cortichiato will be our

Nicole Cortichiato is a writer with narcolepsy who resides on the edge of
consciousness. You’ll find her napping in unusual places and making a
creative life of joy and service despite her disability. She’s published
numerous poems, plays, and children’s stories that blend fiction with
reality and dark humor with optimism. Her short play “Fries” was featured
in TILT Performance Group’s production of “Flip Side Redux.” She also won
2nd place in Austin Film Festival’s First Three Pages Live competition for
her TV script “How to Grow a Man.” If you attend an open mic in Austin,
