SORT BY Relevancy
Corbin Lewars is a fantastic (and very funny) writer. This is in addition to being a mom, a writing mentor and very much a woman. She joins me to tackle two major subjects and well, I know this is going to be good.
AND this is "Chez Laura"s ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!
No matter where you are in life—regardless of your own personal experiences and choices—following Corbin’s journey of self-healing and self-discovery is both thought provoking and uplifting. Her voice is that of an honest and open friend willing to share her story, reveal every raw detail, and inspire with her candor, her humor, and especially her courage. This book is for every woman who has doubted her ability to do what she really wanted to, and it is the proof that we all can.
-Excerpt from review in Hip Mama
Corbin Lewars’ work can be read in Hip Mama, Mothering, Midwifery Today, and many other publications. She was the editor of Verve and Mamaphiles #3, and is the founder of the zine Reality Mom, currently in it’s seventh year of publishing.
And the winner of the Best Narrative Feature at the 2015 Garden State Film Festival is Windsor! The film follows 6 friends in their last year of high school as they prepare to leave their small, struggling Texas hometown, a place caught up in the wheels of giant agribusiness that seems to swallow up small farming towns. Maisie (Madelyn Deutch), whose father is about to be released from prison, decides she can’t leave town where she has been embraced since the dark day when her father nearly killed the man whose company foreclosed on their family farm resulting in long-term devastation on his family. The town patriarch, Gil Denton (perfectly played by character actor Barry Corbin), a no-nonsense, wealthy landowner dying from cancer, and he serves as a sounding board and sympathetic friend, while providing the kids a wistful link to a past they will never know. Set in current time, Windsor reminds us that small town values are worth saving, and that the mouse does indeed occasionally roar. Porter Farrell wrote, directed, and produced Windsor, his first film, along with Producer Adam Dietrich. Everything about the film is so well executed, that you’ll be hard pressed to believe this is Farrell’s first film. The movie also features Quinn Shephard, who received the Rising Star Award from the GSFF, an honor bestowed on an up-and-coming actor/actress with NJ roots. This film is a winner on multiple levels.
