In this episode I chat with Lauren Groff, bestselling author of FATES & FURIES, about her latest short story collection, FLORIDA. We chat about her writing career spanning 6 books thus far, how she moves from short stories to novels, her ways of working, and how she gets her language and characters to sing. (spoiler: I *love* her work - she is really good) This is a great episode to listen to if you want to know: - how can I improve the language that I use in my stories? - how can I learn to see the world around me more clearly? - what are some unusual techniques I can bring to my writing? - how can poetry help my prose? - how can I sustain and develop my voice over several projects?
