Interview on The Rumpus


My former student Maggie Cooper recently interviewed me for The Rumpus. Maggie took her first-ever fiction workshop with me as a Yale undergrad in 2009, and was such a great student: talented, intelligent, insightful when speaking about her peers’ work, generous. It’s thrilling to see how she’s putting all those gifts to use out in the world. When you read this interview, I hope you can see how much fun we had catching up . . . and covering topics as diverse as genre, procrastination, genderqueer magic, and representations of girls’ sexuality in fiction.
