Dawn Promislow in conversation with Sue Burge

Posted on WordCityLit here.

Sue Burge, a poet and freelance creative writing and film studies lecturer based in North Norfolk in the UK, interviews Dawn Promislow about her novel, Wan, and about her writing process.

Dawn, from the interview: “I am interested, instead, in transforming my lived experience into something new, which is what fiction does. I guess you could say I am most interested in the invention that is fiction. Paradoxically, that invention—the imagined world—reflects and deepens our understanding of the real world. That is the great paradox of fiction, and its meaning and power reside there, in that paradox.”
