ep.5_ Elle Nash
11am in Seattle - 6pm in Scotland. I talked with UK based author Elle Nash. Elle was one of the first writers I discovered and was inspired by when I got on twitter and began to find a bunch of writers publishing great work independently. It means a lot to me that she took some time to share thoughts on her life and newest book. Topics include: Nostalgia for the early 00s pre-corporate social media internet and how this informed her new book Gag Reflex, writing about mental health in a meaningful way over many years and artistic projects, how to write authentically in the voice of characters that are very different from you, among many other topics and tangents. Thank you, as always, for listening. ***************************************Elle Nash is the author of the novel Animals Eat Each Other (Dzanc Books), which was featured in the 2018 June Reading Room of The Oprah Magazine and hailed by Publishers Weekly as a 'complex, impressive exploration of obsession and desire'. Elle is also the author of Nudes, a short story collection (SF/LD Books) and GAG REFLEX (Clash Books) coming out in April 2022. Nash’s short stories and essays appear in Guernica, The Nervous Breakdown, Literary Hub, The Fanzine, Volume 1 Brooklyn, New York Tyrant and elsewhere. She is the founding editor of Witch Craft Magazine and a fiction editor at Hobart Pulp. ***Music in this episode is produced by T$UJii
