Transcript

No transcript...

We’re kicking off our second season with a conversation between Mentor alum and debut author of The Waves Take You Home, María Alejandra Barrios Velez, and Mentee Fiona Hernandez. María recently hosted a Friday Night Salon for Girls Write Now all about ancestry, inheritance, and the experience of writing her first novel in her second language. In this episode, you’ll hear María read two excerpts: one from the first draft of her novel and the second from the published book. We hope you enjoy this delicious conversation about home cooking, magical realism, and writing the book of your dreams.

You can pre-order María’s book The Waves Take You Home coming March 19th.

Speaking in First Draft
Speaking In First Draft is an interview podcast platforming the current and next generation of storytellers from the nonprofit Girls Write Now. Released in March 2023, members of the Girls Write Now community share a draft of one of their works in progress and discuss both the writing process and what creative expression looks like to them. Listeners will have the opportunity to engage with the inner machinations and perspectives of writers, producers, and artists from a diversity of episodes and stories.
