Today's WITS Podcast Features a New Collection of Short Stories

Writers in the Sky team member Sarah Moore welcomes author Jeff Roberts to our weekly podcast today. Jeff is joining us to discuss Little Stories, a collection of short stories that was written largely during his undergraduate studies at the University of Iowa. Every page of Jeff's stories is filled with those heart-wrenching emotions that we all experience at some point in life. He tackles first loves and the heartbreak that follows, birth and death, and simply our unending desire to love and be loved. Jeff captures a snapshot in his characters' lives in just a few pages and leaves his readers with personal reactions that will last long after the book is closed.

In the interview, Jeff will discuss how he draws on personal experiences when developing his stories, his thoughts on the short story format, and how his writing has evolved since those initial offerings he created for a first-year writing class.
