Episode details

When you’re stuck with your book, sometimes it’s better to step back from the words and find a different way of seeing what’s happening on the page. Author Henriette Lazaridis gives us loads of tricks to give you new insight into your novel or story through maps, objects, and other non-narrative visuals and spatial representations.

For a list of my fave craft books and the most recent works by our guests, go to our Bookshop page.

Henriette Lazaridis' novel TERRA NOVA (Pegasus Books) was called "ingenious" and "provocative" by the New York Times. Her debut novel The Clover House was a Boston Globe bestseller and a Target Emerging Authors pick. Her short work has appeared in publications including Elle, Forge, Narrative Magazine, The New York Times, New England Review, The Millions, and elsewhere, and has earned her a Massachusetts Cultural Council Artists Grant. Henriette earned degrees in English literature from Middlebury College, Oxford University, where she was a Rhodes Scholar, and the University of Pennsylvania. She teaches at GrubStreet in Boston and runs the Krouna Writing Workshop in Greece.
