Coming Soon: A Talk with Me on the SAFTAcast

The Sundress Academy for the Arts’ regular podcast series, the SAFTAcast, might not be what you’d expect from an artists’ retreat organization and publishing press. When I sat down earlier this week and chatted with the host, Scott Fynboe, we hardly talked about writing. And that was the point: in their own words, the folks at the SAFTAcast “want to know about the creators, not the creations.” So, for an hour and a half, Scott–who is hilarious, by the way–kept me prattling about my experiences as a new teacher, my obsession with Sailor Moon, and what I drink to get drunk. We did touch on some writing points–it was impossible to avoid–but for the most part, we steered clear…and got ourselves at times into some topics of questionable propriety.

I had a great time chatting with Scott, and I hope you’ll be entertained by our hi jinx. The podcast won’t go live until this coming Wednesday, the 19th, though; so in the meantime, check out these past episodes and all the talented writers and artists featured in them! And a huge thanks to Scott and SAFTA for including me in their ranks.
