An Interview with Elizabeth McCracken and Ann Patchett
On November 19, 2005, writers and long-time friends Elizabeth McCracken and Ann Patchett interviewed each other for Blackbird during a visit to Virginia Commonwealth University. They also took questions from students of VCU's MFA Program in Creative Writing. The conversation ranged from their first meeting at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, to their current relationship as writers, to the different ways in which they approach their writing.
