Catherine Banner and Kelly Corrigan on Writers on Writing, KUCI-FM

Marrie Stone is joined by Catherine Banner, author of House at the Edge of Night. Catherine discusses the art of structure, how introducing a fairy tale to the beginning of each section grounded the book, inhabiting characters very different from herself, and writing as an outside (from the perspective of both time and place).

In the second half, Kelly Corrigan discusses her latest, Tell Me More: Stories About the 12 Hardest Things I'm Learning to Say. Corrigan talks about several of those hard things, the need to re-write something 42 times to make it appear easy and seamless, the importance of details and the tines of a fork, and much more great wisdom and advice.
