The Scarlet Line: 27 September 2018


This week on The Scarlet Line, Janelle and Margot were joined by Amy Bayne. Amy discussed her various writing projects, and how she came to be the editor and publisher of the Fredericksburg Literary and Arts Review. She also talked about the the upcoming Fredericksburg Independent Book Festival, now in its third and founded by Amy and her partners. Amy, Margot, and Janelle talked about the creative process and how Amy has come to embrace a process of teaching creative writing that respects differing perspectives and approaches to writing. Amy talked about some podcasts that aspiring writers can listen to in their quest to write and become published authors. Other topics included the gender divide in the publishing industry and why self-publishing helps writers to break through traditional publishing barriers.
