344: A Deep Dive into Point of View – Interview with Sharon Harrigan

Today, I have the pleasure of interviewing Sharon Harrigan.

Sharon is the author of the new novel Half, which has received accolades from places like Booklist, Publisher’s Weekly, Foreword Reviews, and the New York Journal of Books. She earned her a B.A. from Barnard College and an MFA in Creative Writing from Pacific University. She is also the author of the memoir Playing with Dynamite and she teaches at WriterHouse in Charlottesville, Virginia, where she lives with her family.


In this episode Sharon and I discuss:

  • What it means to come of age and how her novel Half addresses that.
  • Why it is important to assess what type of point of view to use for a project.
  • How to use voice as a bridge between the writer and the reader.


Plus, her #1 tip for writers.
