Beginning in July, The Butter will begin featuring an advice column written by know-it-all busybody S. Bear Bergman. Bear’s credentials include long experience as a stage manager, camp counselor, trip leader and bartender, so his opportunity to witness (and learn from) the mistakes of others has been far greater than average. Now, he’s attempting to spin his twin habits of eavesdropping and giving unsolicited advice into a marketable skill. In other news, he’s also an essayist, storyteller, children’s author and arts and culture writer as well as a husband and father (and a transsexual, since before they gave you magazine covers for that sort of thing).
Write to Bear with your questions, whether large or small, at email@example.com. He’ll address himself to one of these questions – and perhaps actually answer it, but one never knows – every Tuesday (starting in July).
Roxane Gay is the editor of The Butter.
