Recently I had the pleasure of talking with Split Lip Zine Editor-in-Chief, Michael Soloway — my first-ever interview over Skype. We discussed editing and revision, MFA programs, and Train Shots, my debut story collection which is speeding toward publication in two months. I’m very grateful to Michael and Split Lip for featuring the interview, as well as reprinting my story “The Lung” this past July.
