Natalie Jacobson has two great loves: music and writing. Jacobson spent a lot of time in the music scene beginning in 1982 when she started promoting club nights around NYC. She was fortunate enough to be a 5 year alum of the famous Ritz nightclub and saw the best bands (and their drama) every night.
After graduating from NYU with a BA in print and written communications, Jacobson worked in the music business before heading out West to check out the music scene there.
She had several articles and interviews published by The Stranger, where she worked in editorial production. In Seattle she was lured into spoken word, and represented Seattle in the National Poetry Slam in Ashville, NC. Her work has appeared in several anthologies and she performed regularly with notables such as Patti Smith, Jim Carroll, Jello Biafra, Excene Cervenka, Lydia Lunch, and Hubert Selby among others. Jacobson also read at Bumbershoot, Seattle; Lollapalooza, and The Crossing Borders Festival, Den Haag. Her first novel No Forwarding Address was released by 2.13.61. Outlaw Efforts is her first graphic novel.
