BIO: Writer, Artist, Performer, Doctor of Philosophy

Leona Godin is a blind writer, artist, performer, and doctor of philosophy. After living in New York for nearly twenty years, she recently left to vagabond as a citizen of the world. Her Distillation Installation was created as a farewell to her home of nearly 17 years.

She wrote and produced two plays: The Spectator & the Blind Man, about the very sexy history of the invention of braille, and The Star of Happiness, about Helen Keller’s time on Vaudeville.

Her writing has recently appeared or is forthcoming in Oprah Magazine, Newtown Literary, FLAPPERHOUSE, and Eunoia Review. She is a regular contributor to Quail Bell Magazine, where she writes a column about all things aromatic and alcoholic called Distill My Heart. You can check out her publishing credits HERE!

Godin creates lush soundscapes for her writing as well as short films. Some examples are: A Pain Named Dog (Poem), We Are Vagina (short film), ,

And yes, Godin is the real blind voice and face behind the Non-24 Vanda TV commercial! You can read her actor resume HERE.
