Nancy Lynee Woo: Living your Creative Mission

Season 3, Episode 27,   Jan 15, 2021, 12:03 AM

Do writers have a duty to share their work? In this interview Nancy Lynee Woo discusses what it’s like to come out of an Emerging Writers Fellowship, to wrestle with the pressure to become a “literary celebrity,” and the difference between trying to get published by a journal, vs. sharing art more freely on social media and personal platforms. She tells us how writing a mission statement for her life helped her get clear about her goals – what was important and what she could let go of, and when. Nancy also discusses her challenges writing a poem about a family member she never knew, and tells us how she approached the prospect of writing about the mystery of personal history, and the unknowable unknowns. Join us for a very full, enriching conversation.
