Episode 2: Nick Flynn
Nick Flynn’s creativity knows no bounds. While he has written many books of poetry, including My Feelings, his most recent out from Graywolf Press, he is also the author of a play, a textbook, and three memoirs, one of which was adapted into the film Being Flynn. He’s also won many awards, including the PEN/Martha Albrand Award for the Art of the Memoir, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and the PEN/Joyce Osterweil Award for Poetry. In his words, he has worked as “a ship's captain, an electrician, [and] a case-worker with homeless adults” though now he holds a prestigious teaching position at the University of Houston.
