This week on the Oddcast we talk with short-story author Richard Butner, who describes himself as a writer, occasional performer, and shipwrecked jester. He runs the annual Sycamore Hill Writers’ Conference, an extraordinarily successful and long-running peer-to-peer workshop hidden deep in the mountains of western North Carolina. Some of his unusual fiction is available in a collection from Small Beer Press.
This week on the Oddcast, the wonderful novelist and short story writer Karen Joy Fowler, author of works such as The Jane Austen Book Club and the PEN/Faulkner Award winning novel We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, discusses her writing career, how and why she came to literature of the fantastic first, a writing process of creating the outline last, and wisdom received from other authors she has known. A great, delightful interview with the amazing Ms. Fowler.
