Recent Events

April 2015
CORNELIA STREET CAFE
New York City, "End of the Line: Stories, stanzas and scenes inspired by fishing." John McCaffrey, author of The Book of Ash (Boxfire Press), hosted select guest performers Nancy Mendez-Booth, Burt Weissbourd, Jack Gwaltney and Harry Dreizen.

John McCaffrey interviewed Burt in KGB Bar Lit Magazine. An excerpt follows:
JM: "You have a psychology background, which is revealed in your characters, the inner narrative you provide them where they often question and explore their emotions. Is this a conscious choice …?"
BW: "Yes, this inner narrative, this self awareness, is a conscious choice ... [A]ll of my characters have intense emotional lives that they experience, observe and reflect on. By making my central characters self aware, it allows a reader to understand the choices that move the story forward."

A former New York Times Writing Fellow, John McCaffrey teaches creative writing at The College of New Rochelle.
