The Tin House Podcast: Why I Write, with Joy Williams

Episode 1 of our brand new podcast is up now. I’m waiting for Mr. Jobs to return my call, but we should be up on iTunes very soon. We’ll keep you posted. For now, head over to the podcast page (which you can also get to by clicking on the little icon over in the “Stay Connected” box).

In our debut episode, your host Lance Cleland brings you Joy Williams’s brilliant reading of “Why I Write” from the 2010 Summer Writers Workshop. If you don’t have it already, run out and buy her essay collection, Ill Nature, and every other one of her books that they carry. I think we were universally blown away by Williams’s reading, and couldn’t be more pleased to have her back this summer.

Stay tuned for a variety of audio features from our magazine, book division, and workshop–readings, interviews, craft seminars, panels, and pretty much anything else we think is worth your while.

Big thanks to our pal Daniel Grazzini (of the Portland band Reporter) for helping us out with the recording and mastering, as well as The Bananas for allowing us to use Pink Tuxedo as the theme music.

UPDATE: The TIn House Podcast is now available in the iTunes Store. Subscribe now for free!
