About Jackie E. Davis 

Jackie E. Davis is the creator of Underpants and Overbites! It's a diary comic all about her often funny, but occasionally serious tiny human life. Frequent themes and characters include her relationship with her husband Pat, childhood memories, her adorable mom, those darn student loans, and just how confusing life as a human on this planet can be. 

You can find her on Instagram @underpantsandoverbites .

Important information about HOUSING:

If I’m coming for a week, where can I stay? How do I find housing? 

Gainesville is a major university town and as such, very friendly to students and visitors. A quick web search should turn up number of local hotels, a hostel, and several bed-and-breakfasts within walking distance of SAW; there are also plenty great spots listed on AirBnB. There are options in all price ranges.

Or Couchsurfing.Org, here.  Or AirBandB, which has spare beds and bedrooms in various houses, check them out here: https://www.airbnb.com/s/Gainesville–FL

This FACEBOOK Group has young people in Gainesville looking for apartments, rooming situations, etc. https://www.facebook.com/groups/461257803968026/

This one is particularly queer-friendly: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1385939891726166/

If you’re having trouble finding housing, contact admin@sequentialartistsworkshop.org and we may have some leads for you.
