I was recently interviewed by Brandon Bye of the Ann Arbor Current, a local arts/life publication, about the upcoming 2015 Voices of the Middle West festival, Midwest literature, and more:
Is there a Midwest Lit renaissance happening right now?
Yes, absolutely. People are seeing these stories about the “ugly” side of life, stories about the everyday, about struggling folks, and they’re embracing them. Never before have I been prouder to be a Midwesterner, and never before have I seen so much of us out there in the literary consciousness.
Thanks to Brandon for talking with me.
