Femme On

In this episode, Jess speaks with essayist, author and teacher Natalie Serber about Ellen Gilchrist’s book of short stories, Victory Over Japan. This is a conversation about finding freedom and courage as a young woman, about the importance of playfulness in writing and the joy of being a mistake-maker. Natalie also talks about the impact Gilchrist had for her own work as an author, specifically her book of short stories titled Shout Her Lovely Name and her essay, Mirrors.
