Writing Your Family Story, featuring Louis Chude-Sokei
The family story drives so many writers to the page—regardless of genre, and in this week’s episode we hear from a writer who has an epic family story to tell. If you have a family story you want to write, you’ll relate to Louis Chude-Sokei’s exploration of needing distance on the one hand and having a fire under him to write his story on the other. We talk about Blackness in America, writing personal story in a way that highlights its uniqueness and its universality, and so much more. This episode is a real treat for anyone interested in—or wrestling with—family story.
