Interviews

Voyage Chicago interviewed Meredith about life as a freelance writer. Check it out here.

“Now, I support myself in writing and editing. And full disclosure: I make more money than I did working for a corporation. I can work from anywhere, as long as I have my computer. I can set my own hours. I can work on creative projects anytime I need a break from professional obligations.

Best of all, I don’t have to spend two hours a day commuting to a job I don’t care about. I haven’t regretted my decision for a minute!”

“Once you start writing poetry, it starts to influence everything; thoughts, emails, texts, so of course the rest of my prose is affected. Each word, each blank space, each punctuation mark must represent something in a poem, and now I’m able to use that mentality when approaching prose. Hopefully that can only make my writing better and more interesting.”

Read Midwestern Gothic’s contributor spotlight with Meredith on her piece “Generation Gap,” featured in Issue 18

“We give meaning to places and experiences in our lives that create a story we like to think is our past, even though so many things are inadvertently left out. I really try to remember those things I automatically want to omit from memory, and dig at why they aren’t the first thing I like to think of.  As writers, we want to document these things more than most people. If we go a step further and document why we document certain things, why we give certain things meaning over others—that’s what I’m interested in.”
