Brad King of The Geeky Press hosts a literary and storytelling extravaganza, a companion to the Indianapolis Downtown Writers Jam event where 6 authors square off in a storytelling competition. In The Downtown Writers Jam Podcast, writers and authors discuss what drives them to tell stories.
Angela Jackson-Brown isn’t just appearing at The Downtown Writers Jam, Vol. 2. She also stopped by the Podcast to talk about how her life helped shape her writing. Her first book, Drinking from a Bitter Cup (WiDo Publishing), is a fictionalized memoir that explores what her life in a small Southern town and abuse she faced as a child. She and Brad touched on what it means to be a writer, why it’s okay to write negatively about books, and the importance of mentors.
