Tania Katan's offering up some expert advice, and you'll take it if you know a thing or two about local literature and performance art.

Katan's a playwright, actor and writer who grew up in Phoenix, moved away, and (lucky for us) came back. She's written a few plays, including Saving Tania's Privates, and her latest book is My One-night Stand With Cancer.

And now she'd like to share. (And by share, she means offer up a creative writing and performing "ass whoopin'," as she puts it.)

Call it a handy gift for the budding performer or a learning experience for any writer or actor, but most of all, Katan's Literary Dominatrix Gift Certificate is a chance to sit down with a seriously funny and talented, local creative and take some notes.

Katan's Literary Dominatrix Gift Certificate includes:

A 2-hour, one-on-one consultation with Katan, focusing on your creative writing needs, which can include any of the following areas:

  • Developing characters and expanding their voices
  • Creating believable dialogue
  • How to transition into a professional writing career
  • Infusing humor into your writing
  • Finding themes and motifs that already exist within your stories
  • Writing exercises that generate pages
  • The business of creative writing: how to identify your audience and start marketing.

Each session is $150 and can be ordered through Katan's website, and are conducted in person (if you live in Arizona), or via email or phone.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
