Here I am over at the Brevity blog, talking creative nonfiction. Also, make sure to check out Jon Rovner’s stunner of an essay “Refresh,” an example of the great stuff you’ll find in The Far Edges of the Fourth Genre.
Interview with Sean Prentiss up at Brevity

Conversation with Brandon Schrand
Last spring I had the good fortune to carry on a dialogue with writer Brandon Schrand about form, language, and experimentation in the writing of memoir. The Mountain and the Fathers eschews chronology for fragmentation and thematic connection, and Brandon’s newest, Works Cited: An Alphabetical Odyssey of Mayhem and Misbehavior, is a freewheeling, fun, affecting memoir penned in the found form of a works cited. You can check out our conversation in this month’s issue of Brevity.
