Thanks to the NEA for this insightful Q&A with one of our great faculty members, Debra Magpie Earling.


NEA: What was your journey to becoming a creative writer?

EARLING: High school dropout. Married to an abusive alcoholic at 17. Divorced at 21. Then moved back in with ex. Had teeth rattled. Told I was stupid. Was knocked down. Bleeding. Knocked down before work. After work. Knocked unconscious. Busgirl. Black eye. Stupid. Waitress.
