The Moe Bowstern Challenge

June 29, 2009: Moe is the nekkid cyclist in The Yodeling Lesson, as well as a phenomenal writer who should have an agent and gobs of money and time to write. But she doesn't, so......


Moe Bowstern challenges any and all to stump her at her own benefit for Xtra Tuf zine. "I can turn any topic into a fishing story." claims this nautical tale teller and 20-year veteran of the Alaska commercial fishing industry.

Bowstern is raising money to fund the publication of the latest issue of her zine Xtra Tuf, The Greenhorn Issue. She is turning to you, her friends and family, for support after a nerve injury this December deprived her of employment as a (non insured) commercial fisherwoman and laborer

Moe Bowstern will read from her forthcoming zine, as will a few suprise guests, with plenty of time for audience members to stump the storyteller with topics for her to weave into a fishing yarn.
