"Living In My Heart In Every Way..."
The following is from Elaine Gale's website for her soon-to-be Off Broadway show, One Good Egg: "Elaine Gale is a California-based writer, performer, storyteller, humorist, fourth-generation educator, speaker, journalist (www.elainegale.com) and Nebraskan who loves artists, writers, community, humor, play, possibility, healing, border collies, and exploration. She is an Associate Professor in the department of Communication Studies and Journalism at California State University, Sacramento, and has been the Writing Center Director for Antioch University’s PhD Program in Leadership and Change for the past 12 years. She is also an adjunct professor in the Communication Department at Santa Barbara City College. Elaine is a former religion reporter for the Los Angeles Times and was an advice columnist and pop culture reporter for the Star Tribune in Minneapolis. She has published work in literary journals including Under the Gum Tree and The Manifest-Station and has been a freelance writer for many national magazines including Entertainment Weekly, W, Variety, Stuff Magazine, Cosmopolitan, and Good Housekeeping—despite the irony. She holds a doctorate in Human Communication from University of Denver, an MFA in Creative Writing from Antioch University, Los Angeles, and a BA in English and Religion from Boston University. Elaine’s mission is to create possibility, freedom and happiness in people’s lives by encouraging and amplifying their authentic creative expression—both on the page and on the stage.
