Podcast Interview at DIY MFA

DiyMFA

 

Yesterday, Gabriela Pereira (a.k.a. my boss at DIY MFA) interviewed me at DIY MFA as part of the site’s new podcast series, “Behind DIY MFA.” We talked about my column Theme: A Story’s Soul and the importance of themes in stories we read and write. We also talked about non-theme-related topics like versatility vs niche writing, the purpose of passion in one’s writing life, and writing rituals. In other words, LOTS of writing topics. 🙂

I have to admit: I was sooooooo nervous right before the interview and again before I listened to the finished product last night, but I knew doing this would be fun and also good “public speaking” practice. And it was. Plus, Gabriela is an awesome interviewer and host; she’s warm, encouraging, funny, and adaptive to any technical glitches. (*ahem* Skype disconnections *ahem*)

The interview is roughly 45 minutes and starts right after Gabriela’s introduction. I hope you enjoy it!
