Anne's activities

Joe Deninzon will also be joining my panel of artists who’ve created their own career opportunities on May 15 at 2 PM at the Global Entertainment Network Summit ( at the Laugh factory in New York City.  The other artists include comedienne/author/world’s fastest talking woman Fran Capo, club and studio owner/singer/songwriter/guitarist Billy Morris, independent TV and film producer Frank Mosca of Harrington Talents in the Bronx to talk about ways we can use the media to further our careers.  I’m also looking for a reporter/journalist that works in more than one medium to join the panel, so if you have suggestions please call me or email.

One of the reasons I’m doing workshops and panels is to promote my book, USING YOUR ART & THE MEDIA TO COMFORT PEOPLE. Another cool thing I’m doing in conjunction with the book is sponsoring the word “comfort” at the website ETYMOLOGY ONLINE. is one of my all-time favorite websites as it shows word origins.  Independent acts need clever ideas to help create media attention, and it costs about 10 dollars for six months to sponsor a word.  Check out the site and see if sponsoring a word is something you can try to help hype one of your projects.

By the way, “Comfort” is from Latin roots including the word “fortis” which is “strong.”  So “comfort” means “to help, to strengthen.”
