I can’t say I enjoy hearing my own voice (do any of us?), but I was still super-pleased when the folks at Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine invited me to record my story “English 398: Fiction Workshop” for their monthly podcast series. And I was thrilled when several members of my own English Department at George Mason University agreed to contribute cameos and even a co-starring role: Mary Baldwin (a linguist), Lisa DesRochers-Short (a poet), and Jay Patel (a fiction writer)—all from the department’s administrative staff—and undergraduate Madison Gaines, Class of 2021, who’s pursuing a dual concentration in fiction and poetry in Mason’s BFA Program in Creative Writing.
You can hear the story here—and read along here!
Hope folks enjoy.
