In this episode we sit down with Leigh Stein, author of the novel The Fallback Plan, a book of poems, Dispatch From The Future, and co-host of the reading series[with Sasha Fletcher] The Book Report. We talked with Leigh about writing memoir, dealing with trauma/grief and how that affects the process of writing, her new venture called BinderCon, standing up to online misogyny in the literary community, and a gang of other things--including Civil War reenactments. We can safely say this: Leigh is rad, and you should check out everything she does.

In this episode we hang out with Courtney Maum, author of I Am Having So Much Fun Here Without YouCelebrity Book Review columnist for Electric Literature, and all-around lady of letters. We talk about the long and tough road to getting a book published, how to immerse oneself into a literary scene, how to keep laughing, and what it's like to live in three places at one time. There is a lot of good advice for everyone in this episode. We hope you dig Courtney as much as we do.

In this episode, we sit down with the wonderful Chelsea Hodson, author of Pity the Animal, which is available in print from Future Tense Books/Scout Books and is now also available as a Kindle Single. We run the gauntlet with Chelsea, talking about her unique voice and her influences and being someone from the desert and the art of omission as a writing tool. Dig in, this one is meaty and lovely.
