Take a break, get inspired, and learn a bit more about Shaunacy Ferro. Here is our twist on an interview.
- A quote that inspires you:
- Your writing process described as a song: Waves, Cloud Nothings – How It’s Gonna Go
- You’re a writer so tell us with your words why you write. But please don’t bore us:
I write to explore alternate lives, in parallel universes where I am born a different person, in a different set of circumstances, faced with a different set of challenges. What if I lived on a farm instead of a cramped urban apartment? What if I was an aging sports champion instead of a steadfast couch potato? What if I were a man instead of a woman? Fiction allows me to play out those scenarios in my imagination.
- What is a recent story or poem you’ve had published elsewhere that we should read?
“I Unfollowed My Boyfriend on Twitter to Save Our Relationship” published in The Cut
Shaunacy Ferro is a seltzer connoisseur living in New York City with a cat who refuses to become Instagram famous, despite her best efforts. She has won zero awards.
