Carmen Maria Machado On Staying True To Your Voice
I was so deeply honored to get to do a live podcast interview with Carmen Maria Machado at the University Of The Arts. I was deeply moved by Carmen's first book: Her Body and Other Parties, and wanted to talk craft and what her journey to becoming an award-winning author was like. Carmen recently published her second book a memoir called In the Dream House. She has been a finalist for the National Book Award and the winner of the Bard Fiction Prize, the Lambda Literary Award for Lesbian Fiction, the Brooklyn Public Library Literature Prize, the Shirley Jackson Award, and the National Book Critics Circle's John Leonard Prize. Carmen was a joy to chat with and I left feeling very inspired.
