We talk with Andi Cumbo-Floyd about why (and why not) to pursue an MFA, how she found a path she loves in the independent publishing world, and the key to making money as a writer. Well, not really THE key, but she offers a few ideas. We wonder together why we let writing become something other than play. Also, is art only legitimate if it feels like drudgery and keeps us poor?
Join Andi as she seeks to explore what it means to live a life of words. And check out her books, too (including her cozy mysteries, written under the pseudonym, ACF Bookens). Finally, be sure to visit her writing community, Wisdom and Grace.
