Essays on memoir, music, and more from Beatrice M. Hogg


Essays and musings from Beatrice Marvella Hogg. I’m a freelance writer and social services worker living in Sacramento, CA, available for editorial and creative writing work and consultations. I have been a published freelance writer for over 20 years, writing mostly about rock music, books, fashion, cultural issues, and my life. Life as an African American middle aged female rocker/social worker creates its own stories! I grew up in a coal mining town in western Pennsylvania, the adopted daughter of an illiterate coal miner. I have lived in northern California for over twenty years, working for the government, at a homeless shelter, and for an association, among other adventures. I’ll be sharing some of my favorite short essays and stories, some of which are adapted from my (as-yet) unpublished memoir essay collections, The Colordeaf Chronicles and Montour Four.
