Eric Weiner and Sari Wilson

Eric Weiner, author of The Geography of Genius, joins Marrie Stone to offer ideas about sparking creativity.  While we can't all be geniuses, we can all benefit from techniques that stimulate genius ideas.  From walking to collaborating, traveling to drinking a little, there are a number of practices writers and artists can use to further their craft.

In the second half, Sari Wilson talks about her debut novel, Girl Through Glass.  Drawing on inspiration from her own youth, Sari discusses why certain subjects won't leave writers alone, how ballet helped and hurt her as a writer, the conflicts between the corporeal woman and the spiritual woman, and the best advice Grace Paley ever gave her.
