Devon’s Diary: The True Account of a Fictional Life


Written, Produced, Performed, Sound Design, Edit, & Music by:

Jennifer Howd

(with special recorded appearance by Tony Howd)

A gritty, 6-part audio fiction series taking place in 1990’s NYC, Devon’s Diary follows a young artist’s darkly-comedic downward spiral, initiated by her mother’s death—and the subsequent request by her girlfriend to open their previously monogamous relationship. Incapable of coping with her pain, Devon’s only method of dealing with it is by self-medicating—and her only way of trying to make sense of it is by turning it into “art.”
