The Riff Raff Podcast #51 - Fatima Farheen Mirza
Another week, another glorious podcast full of writing insight and advice from exciting debut talent. Don't say we don't completely spoil you! This week - we were lucky enough to be chatting to Fatima Farheen Mirza, author of the New York Times Bestseller, A Place for Us.
We chatted to Fatima about the importance of honouring the consciousness of your characters as they develop and heard all about her rather bloody lovely technique of exploratory writing and what it involves. We chat all things Iowa Writers Workshop...and of course ask for the inside scoop on what it was like to work on a book for ten years, only to have it snapped up by Sarah Jessica Parker's Hogarth Imprint.
We also delve in to how to write sibling dynamics, how to plan the reveals needed to drive your story forward and being open to receiving creative ideas from wherever magic land they come from!
