I interview Andrea Hairston, author, playwright, and academic. Hairston teaches playwriting, African, African American, and Caribbean theatre literature at Smith college and is the Artistic Director of Chrysalis Theatre. Andrea is not only a brilliantly talented writer and performer, she’s one of the most energetic people I’ve ever met. The way she talks about writing is electrifying, and because of a conversation we had at WisCon about the connection between writing by hand and creativity, I wanted to talk to her more about it for this podcast.
Present: K. Tempest Bradford, Andrea Hairston.
