Episode details

What is the Unstable Ground Situation? Why might you need it for your story? How do you find it? What does it have to do with character development and where your story should really start? We talk through these questions with Steven Lee Beeber, fiction and nonfiction author, editor, and longtime writing teacher.

Steven Lee Beeber is the author of The Heebie-Jeebies at CBGB’s: A Secret History of Jewish Punk (Chicago Review Press), the editor of AWAKE! A Reader for the Sleepless (Soft Skull Press), and the associate editor of the literary journal Conduit. His work has appeared in The Paris Review, Harper's, The New York Times and elsewhere. He teaches creative writing and creative nonfiction at Framingham State University and GrubStreet, and was the recipient of Somerville Arts Council/Mass Cultural Council Grants in 2019 and 2022. A documentary based on his book about the Holocaust origins of punk, has been optioned by Determination Pictures.
