Thomas H. McNeely discusses linked stories for The Writer’s Spotlight

“Linked stories can allow you to create a portrait of a character or a place, or both, in a much different way from a novel. In story collections, the connections can be looser, characters can transform in surprising and sometimes jarring ways.” Thomas H. McNeely interviewed by Malena Watrous for Stanford’s The Writer’s Spotlight. ReadContinue reading “Thomas H. McNeely discusses linked stories for The Writer’s Spotlight”

TRP Q&A: An Interview with Theodora Ziolkowski

“The idea of not having a book on me alarms me. I keep an ’emergency book’ in my car because the possibility of ever being expected to wait without a book—or, worse case scenario, unexpectedly stranded somewhere—disturbs me deeply.”

TRP Q&A: An Interview with Jennifer Sperry Steinorth

“When you design a dwelling you are giving shape to space so that a body, humans mostly, but not just—can inhabit the space. If one thinks of a poem as a dwelling—after all stanza is Italian for room—then it is interesting to think not only about what one is saying, but about the space one is shaping, through which someone else will move.”

TRP Q&A: An Interview with Jack B. Bedell

“I read like a fiend as a child, all science and history, though! My favorite books were Audubon Field Guides, especially the editions about snakes, birds, and fishes. I also carried around a copy of Jacques Cousteau’s The Shark: Splendid Savage of the Seas book for years. Still have it on my shelf now!”

TRP Q&A: An Interview with Megan Baxter

TRP Q&A: An Interview with David Armand

For me, almost all reading is pleasurable. And I can learn from it, even the bad stuff. But I particularly like long novels where I can spend weeks or even months with the characters—thinking about them throughout the day and looking forward to the next morning when I can spend time with them again.
