Gail Godwin and Parnaz Foroutan on Writers on Writing

Barbara DeMarco-Barrett talks with Gail Godwin, novelist and memoirist, about her new memoir Publishing, and the changes she's seen in the industry, being a student in Kurt Vonnegut's workshop, and working with the same agent for 50 years. Then debut novelist Parnaz Foroutan, author of The Girl from the Garden, talks with Nicole Nelson about why she used an unreliable narrator, the responsibility that comes with telling a story inspired by family history, and the benefits of "talking to your demons"while writing, and letting them guide you to the good stuff.
