Jaime Dunkle is a writer/performer in Portland, Oregon. She mixes the profound and the profane in her prose with an altruism that stems from her background as a journalist. Her stories range from fiction to personal narrative and often blur between the two. She’s performed her work as a featured writer at Salon Skid Row, Get Nervous, The Bunker Series, and The Hour That Stretches.
Jaime started her career by writing a silly advice column in a now-defunct strip club magazine called Underground. She went on to write counter-culture interviews for Suicide Girls and has since written for news organizations such as The Oregonian and Digital Trends.
You can read her personal narrative column, “Love in a Plain Brown Envelope,” and her flash fiction excerpts from her forthcoming book, Stripped in Pornland, in Exotic magazine.
