Brad King hosts The Downtown Writers Jam Podcast, a discussion with writers about the terrible things in life that led them to join the ranks of the weird and the writerly.

Oct 16, 2014

When Sarah Layden stopped by the Downtown Writers Jam Podcast, she wasn’t expecting to explore how the themes from her childhood diaries played out in her fiction writing. But that happened. Before long, they were discussing how writers find their voice, and what it means to be authentic. The showed ended as they discussed the problem with "women’s literature" label, and the ways writers use empathy to tell universal stories. Oh, and don't forget to buy Sarah's debut novel, Trip Through You Wires (Engine Books, 2015). You can pre-order the novel today.
