Artpod on writers, good stories, and blind luck
Today on Artpod, we're talking with writers: how they stop being terrible and start being good.
How they start with their own weirdness and turn it into talent.
And how Midwest writers can take anything - learning how to make fudge or throwing tomatoes at their sister's butt - and turn it into a great story.
First, we'll hear from Garrison Keillor, who's celebrating 40 years of "A Prairie Home Companion" and the release of his new book of essays, poetry and memoir.
Then, we'll talk with a writer who says Kalamazoo is a mini Mecca for anybody who loves writing, reading, and being somewhere you can't "throw a rock without hitting a poet."
Don't forget: we want to know what you're loving right now when it comes to Michigan music, movies, books, art, and culture in your corner of the state.
