MJ VanDevere is a Jersey girl who comes from a long line of women who don’t hold their tongue. While her bark is sometimes big, her bite is practically nonexistent (unless that’s something you’re into and she happens to be into you). Behind her acerbic wit is a true sweetheart who lives off laughter, finding the funny in any situation, with a twisted but entertainingly magical sense of humor. Equal parts editor, writer, storyteller, educator, scholar, and comedian, MJ uses her unique talents and experiences to affirm and support women of color. She loves collaborating with other creatives and scholars and can be reached via the internets.
