Short Story Writers Peter Orner & Ben Marcus on Writers on Writing, KUCI-FM

Peter Orner joins Marrie Stone to talk about his latest collection, Maggie Brown & Others. He discusses the power of the short story form, and how he attempted to create the sensation of walking down a city sidewalk and staring up into all the lit apartment windows to get a sense of story. He talks about the importance of place, and leaving it. And much more.

In the second half, Ben Marcus shares his collection, Notes From the Fog. Ben talks about the story around which the rest of the collection formed, how Elon Musk's hatred of food inspired him, and more.
