About Us

A funny thing happened on the way to the Recession...

Here in the South we've been living hand-to-mouth forever. In all this bailing-out and bonusing-up, the family still has to eat and baby needs a new pair of shoes. Recession? That just another word for "time to have a yard sale." So sit down, have a glass of tea, and don't look at your 401K for a bit. You deserve a break.

Who are these women?

We're a bunch of writing teachers and other miscreants who know how to make-do. Some of us were born in the South, the rest of us have been here long enough that we have "people." Either way, we're the queens of making dead-broke look good. We have to. We teach for a living.
