382: Character, Setting, and Cinematic Storytelling in Short Stories – Interview with Khanh Ha

Today, I have the pleasure of interviewing Khanh Ha.

Khanh is the author of Flesh and The Demon Who Peddled Longing

He is a seven-time Pushcart nominee, finalist for the Mary McCarthy Prize, Many Voices Project, Prairie Schooner Book Prize, and The University of New Orleans Press Lab Prize. 

He is the recipient of the Sand Hills Prize for Best Fiction, the Robert Watson Literary Prize in Fiction, The Orison Anthology Award for Fiction, and The C&R Press Fiction Prize. 

His new novel, Mrs. Rossi’s Dream, was named Best New Book by Booklist and a 2019 Foreword Reviews INDIES Silver Winner and Bronze Winner

 

In this episode Khanh Ha and I discuss:

  • How he writes death scenes in a way that is comfortable for him and powerful for the reader.
  • The difference between style and voice and how writers can make both unique.
  • Why writers need to stay faithful to their character when creating the POV of the narrative.

 

Plus, his #1 tip for writers.
