Hey folks! I’m out of town so I’ll get straight to it: Hamilton’s own Nichole Fanara is with us to talk about her collection In The Moment. Hope you enjoy!
E339 with ANDREW F. SULLIVAN
Hey folks! Andrew F. Sullivan and his partner (author Amy Jones) moved to Hamilton a few years ago, and I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know them a little in recent months. I was even lucky enough to have him come on by the studio in-person.
Sullivan’s newest is The Marigold, which has been getting a ton of press – positive press – since its release. For good reason. It’s probably my favourite book of the year so far. Of course, it’s right in my wheelhouse: horror, satire, humour, etc. Listen in to hear all about it!
E338 with LAUREN CARTER
Lauren Carter‘s on the show this week, talking about her collection, Places Like These. Give it a listen!
Also, if you’re in Toronto, come see me read! And not just me – also Kim Conklin, Matt Cahill and A.G. Pasquella. It’s a heckuva line-up and I’m lucky to be part of it!
It’ll be at Flying Books, on College near Ossington, on June 7. More details to come.
E337 with AARON BOOTHBY and BRITTA BADOUR
Hey folks! Doubling up on the poetry today. Check out my chat with Aaron Boothby (about his collection, Continent) and Britta Badour (about hers, Wires That Sputter). Thanks!
E336 with STEPHEN MARCHE and EMILY RIDDLE
Hey all! Today’s show is two interviews. First we speak with Stephen Marche about his entry into Biblioasis‘ Field Notes series – On Writing and Failure. A little close to the bone, that title. Our other guest is Emily Riddle who is here to talk about poetry and The Big Melt. Enjoy!
E335 with KELLY S. THOMPSON
Hey folks! On social media I’ve been pushing a few events, so if you don’t follow me on IG, Twitter or Facebook, hop on it 😀
Today we talk with the wonderful Kelly S. Thompson. Always enjoyable to chat, even when the book isn’t necessarily cheer-filled. We discuss her newest memoir, Still, I Cannot Save You.
E334 with JENNIFER GILLIES (GRIT LIT)
Late post today! I’m in sunny Kitchener, ON, in a rented condo, on a self-imposed retreat. A lot of pacing and talking to myself plus 3,000 words of notes. It’s a good thing.
GRIT LIT returns once again! Listen to hear all the details from Artistic Director Jennifer Gillies!
E333 with NICHOLAS HERRING
Hey folks! I had the chance to speak to P.E.I. author Nicholas Herring over ZOOM. I sound awful but he’s clear as a bell 😀 Listen as we talk about his novel Some Hellish!
E332 with PATRICIA WESTERHOF
If you’re an up and coming author, or someone who wants to brush up on their writing skills, or someone who wants to know more about the publishing industry in Canada, you’ll want to check out today’s show. We speak with Patricia Westerhof, author of The Canadian Guide to Creative Writing & Publishing.
E331 with SOPHIE CROCKER and ANYA WASSENBERG
Hey all! Double shot of talent today. First up is poet Sophie Crocker, here to talk about her collection Brat. Next up is writer, journalist and instructor Anya Wassenberg. Tune in for both!
