Writing Memoir Through the Veil of Fiction with Melanie Thorne

May 27, 2019

Today’s guest is Melanie Thorne, who earned her MA in Creative Writing from the University of California, Davis, where she worked with Pam Houston and Lynn Freed. Her thesis there was the first draft of what later became her debut novel, Hand Me Down which has been widely praised. Melanie joined me today to talk about presenting a memoir through the veil of fiction, and how the reading audience sometimes gets a thrill out of the consumption of another’s pain.

July Roundup & H.R. 1695: What It Means For Writers

July 24, 2017

This month host Mindy McGinnis welcomed Middle Grade novelist and playwright Tara Dairman as well as Regional SCBWI Director and YA author Jody Casella. Listen to their episodes to learn about such topics as querying when you are already a published author, and how to use social media as an MG writer - which means your audience isn't necessarily online.

Also, learn about H.R. 1695 - the Register of Copyrights Selection and Accountability Act. What is it, and why should you care?

Writer, Writer, Pants on Fire will be taking a break during the month of August. New listeners, take the time to catch up on the 21 published episodes!
