If you are curious about something related to my work, I might’ve gotten into it at Longform or Catapult or Brooklyn Magazine or Mythos (where these photos, taken by the wonderful Elena Mudd, are from). Or it might be in this Elle profile, this SSENSE interview, this second Longform interview. If you are wondering if I think you should get an MFA, I say yes, if you are lucky enough to get into a funded program that will allow you to treat the degree like a low-paying job where your job is to write whatever you want. If you’re looking for writer-advice, I talk about it at the Creative Independent, and also: read a ton, learn what type of chemistry you have with what subjects, figure out how to be very generous but very tough with yourself at the same time.
