Chris Barzak, Jedediah Berry, and Genevieve Valentine In Conversation: Crawford Award Winners
At ICFA this past March 2013 we were lucky enough to have three recent Crawford award winners attending the conference: Chris Barzak, Jed Berry, and Genevieve Valentine. (Acutally, there were five winners at the conference that weekend, one of whom was one of our guests of honor, Kij Johnson.) I was lucky enough to catch the three of them after their joint reading on Saturday morning. In a mostly coherent fashion we discussed what winning the Crawford means to the winners, their movement from short fiction to novels, experiments in formalism, brushes with academics, approaches to research, and other topics.
