Thirty days worth of living, writing, process and perchance are encapsulated in this first piece, titled “NANOWRIMO (National Novel Writing Month), Or, The Part of The Novel”. Written by Brian Alan Ellis, this piece was published in Hobart.
Our second piece just so happens to come from the founder of NaNoWriMo, Grant Faulkner. While not explicitly about writing, this brief piece does touch on stories. Published in Green Mountains Review, it’s called “The Toad.”
Our third piece moves through time and place as if it’s all relative (hint, it is indeed). anchored in detail and dialogue, it’s called “Ames Hill.” It was written by Erin Calabria and published in Pithead Chapel.
Micro is edited and curated by Dylan Evers and produced and hosted by Drew Hawkins. Theme song is by Matt Ordes. Follow the show on Twitter at @podcastmicro.
