Katharine Coldiron is the guest. Her debut novella, Ceremonials, is available from Kernpunkt Press.
Coldiron's work has appeared in Ms., the Washington Post, LARB, the Times Literary Supplement, the Guardian, BUST, the Kenyon Review, the Rumpus, VIDA, Brevity, and elsewhere. She earned a B.A. in film studies & philosophy from Mount Holyoke College and an M.A. in creative writing from California State University, Northridge. She has read many, many books. Born in the American South to a professor of poetry and translation and a U.S. Navy captain, and raised along the East Coast, she now lives in Los Angeles.
In today's monologue, I respond to some mail and talk about my new social media director, Joseph Grantham.
