UVA Slavic studies professor Andy Kaufman will interview writer Josh Weil about the ways in which taking a leap into a drastically different character can open up your writing, and how setting a story in a place unsettlingly at odds with what you’re used to can force an even greater specificity of vision into your work. He’ll also talk about the challenges, both internal and external, of breaking far away from yourself in your fiction, and the ways in which doing so can bring you closer to your core project at the same time. Free and open to the public.
