In this episode, I speak with Bud Smith and discuss his life and work. Bud is the author of the books Double Bird, WORK, Dust Bunny City, and many more. His short story Violets was recently published by the Paris Review. He Zoomed in from the Catskill mountains, where he's currently quarantining and undoubtedly writing yet another great book.
Bud walks us through the creation of Violets, from inception to publication, and the evolution each draft in between. We talk about the craft of story writing, pub-infiltrating poets, thriving as an artist with a day job, typewriters vs computers, working construction, extracting the humor from life, and so much more.
