Meet our readers: Julie Threlkeld

TRANSIT NOTE: Q.E.D. is usually a short trip from Manhattan on the N train to Astoria–Ditmars Blvd in Queens. However, planned construction will disrupt train service the weekend of June 2nd. Shuttle buses will run from Queensboro Plaza to Astoria–Ditmars Blvd. Please leave yourself plenty of extra time for travel, at least thirty minutes to be safe.

Julie Threlkeld has been performing in storytelling shows in and around New York City since 2011. She has appeared as an invited storyteller in shows like RISK!, Talk Therapy Stories, New York Story Exchange, and The How I Learned Series, to name just a few. Podcast appearances include RISK!, A Funny Thing by Splitsider, The Whole Story, and Succotash: The Comedy Podcast Podcast. Her solo show, Generator: A Disastrous Love Story, premiered at The Tank theatre in Manhattan in 2015 and hasn't been heard from since.

Julie is also the creator and host of Modern Stories Mix, a studio-recorded podcast that turns a sonic Klieg light on one story (and one storyteller) each episode—although the show is currently on hiatus. In addition to storytelling, Julie occasionally performs standup comedy. She sometimes composes and performs music. From time to time she guests hosts a storytelling show. Or she writes a poem. Or maybe makes a short film. Even less frequently she engages in random acts of journalism, having written about anxiety for The New York Times and about the strange, obsessive world of professional distance running for Runner's World and Running Times. By day Julie works as a content strategist and writer in the user experience group of a large technology company. By night she eats and sleeps with fellow Line Break reader Jonathan Sumpter.

Upcoming summer appearances include Big Irv's Pet Detective Agency (May 26), Storytelling at Halyard's (June 10) and New York Story Exchange (July 10).

Please join Julie and all our outstanding readers for Line Break #19, Saturday, June 2, 5:00 p.m. at Q.E.D. in Astoria. Tickets are only 7 bucks!
