“Write what you know” is a piece of advice you've probably heard many times throughout your writing journey. For author Lan Samantha Chang, that meant drawing from her experience growing up in one of the only Chinese families in a small Midwestern town. Chang drew from these experiences to write The Family Chao, a modern-day Brothers Karamazov that centers on the story of an immigrant family in the rural Midwest. Chang is also the director of the renowned Iowa Writers' Workshop. In this episode, she talks about her heritage and how her upbringing impacted her journey as an author. She also talks about pivoting to writing as an adult, and dealing with struggles such as financial difficulties and pigeonholing from the industry.

What was it that drew you into this industry?2) What makes Firework's livestreaming platform different from the many technology companies trying to stake ground in this space?3) Late last year, Firework announced a strategic investment from American Express. As I mentioned in my introduction, you spent over 10 years at Amex. From a payments company perspective what is making the livestreaming industry such an attractive investment opportunity? 4) Firework made some major buzz when it announced that its platform would power livestreaming video storytelling for Albertsons, one of the largest grocery retailers in the country. Can you give us context as to this partnership and why retailers, not just brands, would want to leverage your capabilities?5) Firework was recently shortlisted  as one of the finalists of the Unilever Foundry Positive Beauty growth Platform startup pitch competition. Can you tell us what that was about and why Firework came out as one of the finalists?6) How do you think that livetstreaming is bridging the gap between physical and digital? Do you have an example of how Firework is enabling this connectivity?7) Can you help demystify the elements of a good livestreaming event. Are celebrities really necessary or are there other best practices from Firework's experience?8) We love to ask about predictions on this podcast.

Lucy Atkinson and Janina Arndt from The Fey Fellowes Podcast also join me for a chat about Greek Mythology and how writers can find inspiration in exploring it.

Our presuppositions matter In a past lesson, I shared how the Bible has the same structure as a novel but as I was preparing for going through the Bible in the coming year, I realized that a more detailed look at how the Bible is like a novel as opposed to a collection of short stories has important implications for how we read and apply it. In this lesson I'll briefly explain how the short story view is the dominant, though incorrect, view today, and then why I believe it's valid to view the Bible as similar to a novel—I think you'll find it very interesting. This is a complex lesson, but extremely important for you to understand and apply.

Three votes for Carribean Fragoza's Eat the Mouth that Feeds You to be something every high school senior is exposed to. This debut collection of short stories is genius, this is late 20th early 21st century Southern California. This is Chicanx, this is Latinx, this is SoCal, this is women, this is body horror, magic realism all in 120 pages. Ten stories about place and placemaking, about community and how we lift each other up, or tear each other apart. A must read! “This collection of visceral, often bone-chilling stories centers the liminal world of Latinos in Southern California while fraying reality at its edges.
