The SAFTAcast, a part of the Sundress Academy for the Arts, is pleased to announce that it will feature an interview with writer Timothy Gager in an upcoming episode. This new episode and all previous episodes and promos are available for on iTunes for free download and can also be found on the podcast’s blog on SAFTAcast.com.
SAFTAcast prides itself on being a writer’s podcast that is not about writing. In fact the subject of writing is immediately ruled out as a possible conversation topic. These programs are more focused on learning about the creators as opposed the creation. This often inspires candid and no-pressure conversations about whatever may be on their minds. Host Scott C Fynboe brings an electric charge to the program with witty insights that spur on guests and eccentric promos for each upcoming episode. Scott C Fynboe is a former radio disc jockey from upstate New York. He received a PhD in Literature and Creative Writing from the University of Southern Mississippi and currently lives and teaches on Florida’s Treasure Coast.
Guests on the SAFTAcast range from Sundress Publications authors or, in the case of Timothy Gager, more widely published poets and writers from around the country. The exclusive interview with Gager features not only coverage on his work as an accomplished novelist, fictionist, and poet, but also his fascination with child stars, The Carpenters, classic rock, the dawn of e-readers, and publishing on Facebook.
Timothy Gager is the author of eleven books of short fiction and poetry. His latest The Thursday Appointments of Bill Sloan, (Big Table Publishing) is his first novel. He hosts the successful Dire Literary Series in Cambridge, Massachusetts for over thirteen years. His work has appeared in over 300 journals, has been nominated nine times for Pushcart Prize, and once for The Massachusetts Book Award. Also, his fiction has been read on National Public Radio.
