Interview on Episode 1 of Citizen Lit

I was recently invited to come chat on Citizen Lit‘s debut episode about Mesilla, Midwestern Gothic, the state of the writing community, and more.

CLCitizen Lit is the brainchild of Jim Warner and Aubrie Cox, fantastic writers and two of the absolutely best people I know (no joke, they are incredible). In their words: Citizen Lit is about extending the conversation beyond the writer. Each week this literary podcast explores what it means to be an active member of the writing world through reviews, interviews, and recorded performances. Art is about connection and engagement—how the work speaks to us and how we respond back. 

I can’t tell you how much this means to me. Getting the writing community together—especially when it’s so easy to find yourself lost in comparisons, to live writer vs. writer—is a worthwhile feat, and I love that they’re celebrating the craft, the community, and the people in it. No one else is doing this, and when Jim first told me about this, I knew it was going to be a big deal. I’m unbelievably honored to be in the first episode, and really, this is one of the coolest, most important things I’ve been a part of ever. Period.

Give it a listen, support Citizen Lit. Be a part of the conversation.
