The SAFTAcast, a part of the Sundress Academy for the Arts, has released its 14th Episode featuring author Leslie LaChance. 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 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 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 to widely published poets and writers from around the country. In her interview, Nashville writer Leslie LaChance talks about her upstate NY origins and her love of Tennessee, and then gets Scott C to admit he hated E.T.

Leslie LaChance’s poems have appeared in Quiddity, JMWW, the Best of the Net Anthology, Apple Valley Review, The Greensboro Review, Juked, The Birmingham Poetry Review, Slow Trains, Free Lunch, Chronogram, and Appalachian Journal. She also edits Mixitini Matrix: A Journal of Creative Collaboration. Her chapbook, How She Got That Way, appears in the quartet volume Mend & Hone from Toadlily Press.
