From our podcast:

Hold That Thought Podcast

A Room of One's Own

In 2010, VIDA—Women in Literary Arts—found that between 3 to 5 men were being published or reviewed for every one woman that appeared in leading magazines. Danielle Dutton discusses what these numbers mean to her and the poetics of suburbia in her novel, SPRAWL. In the second half of the episode, Vincent Sherry explores the life and literary opinions of Virginia Woolf.
