This week on JJ Amaworo Wilson speaks with novelist Mary Sojourner on her work both as an author and as a teacher of the craft and art of writing.
Mary Sojourner is the author of three novels, Sisters of the Dream (1989); Going Through Ghosts and 29, 2014; two short story collections, Delicate, 2001 and The Talker, 2017; essay collection, Bonelight: ruin and grace in the New Southwest; memoir, Solace: rituals of loss and desire and memoir/self-help guide, She Bets Her Life. She reviews books for KNAU, a local NPR affiliate, and has written countless essays, columns and op/eds for High Country News, Yoga Journal, Writers on the Range and dozens of other publications.
She teaches writing, in private circles, one-on-one, at colleges and universities, writing conferences and book festivals and on-line for Matador U. She believes in both the limitations and possibilities of healing. Writing is the most powerful tool she has found for doing what is necessary to mend what has been broken.
