Brian & Robert dissect, analyze, and generally geek out over the Spillers № 4 (Monday, May 2nd, 2016 @ 7:30PM at Crescent Ballroom) lineup of talented writers–Joel Salcido, Michael Holladay, David Waid, Tara Ison, Paul Mosier & Matt Bell. Listen and discover which Spiller co-wrote the screenplay for a 1991 cult classic movie, how to pronounce the title of Matt Bell’s short story, and which Spiller has a thing for Columba livia (that’s pigeons, for those not in the know).
See you Monday night!
Patrick Michael Finn is a writer’s writer who has a ton to say about the writing life. After closing out Spillers No. 3 in style, Patrick tells us about following in David Foster Wallace’s MFA footsteps, how a little generosity from fellow writers can go a long way, and why a trip on the light rail with your six-year-old son is a perfect opportunity to contemplate truly awful things.
