I first met Jon McGoran when we were both reading at a Noir at the Bar one snowy night in Baltimore. He’s a fine writer and has become a fine friend as well, and I was so pleased when he invited me to be a guest on the Liars Club Oddcast that he helps run—and then grateful for his patience as we worked out a time to record the podcast around my class times and the bus stop schedule!
Jon and his co-hosts—Gregory Frost, Merry Jones, and Keith Strunk—were so gracious and generous with their questions about my work and the places the conversations went from there, about short stories, about experimental structures in fiction, about teaching creative writing, about reviewing, and much more.
I hope you’ll give it a listen, hope you’ll enjoy sitting in on the conversation as much as I enjoyed being part of it! You can find the episode with me as a guest here.
