The LEARNING HOW TO READING interview series was a Summer 2015 project where I interviewed twenty writers who hosted reading series. Each interview contains similar themes and questions about what makes a live reading smooth, successful, memorable, comfortable, safe, and inviting. The series was hosted at the Atticus Review online.
