In the day-to-day world, many of us face the occasional snotty attitude toward our more creative, fantastical pursuits, and sometimes those difficulties even come from within. Musical Guest of Honor S. J. Tucker shares her own practical magic for facilitating the fantastical in the face of such nonsense, sharing how she’s learned to slay deadlines, cultural conditioning, and self-doubt with respect to writing and singing songs for a living. Expect a few lively live numbers and, we hope, a couple of enlightening surprises which can be applied not only to musical adventures, but also to any number of other awesome artistic practices.
