So where DO you go to publish hypnotized zombies fucking bears? Or whatever. Asking for a friend. :-)

For the Unenlightened folks downvoting this post: Most ama posts (not by celebrities) end up attracting other experts in the same field. And they give their perspective too. It is a good thing.

If you put yourself against a piano, can you feel vibrations change as it is played? I read that Beethoven, who went deaf, could feel the vibrations of the piano and tell different notes.

Not OP but I teach tech to kids. The easiest way to start is by doing tech for school and volunteering at local community theatres. If she’s into a particular sub-field (stage management, lighting, sound, scenic...) there are several good intro textbooks that even the pros still use as reference. If she doesn’t know what she likes yet, just going along to a load in and joining backstage run crew will give a taste. But if she’s interested she has probably done that already! Tech directors are a great resource for beginners because they know a lot about all areas.

Practice with tools and make sure she is able to keep her cool when things go very wrong. If she can’t do that, then tech isn’t for her!
