I remember someone in class, one of my friends, a guy, saying, ‘You know, you’re writing stories about women for women,’ and it had never dawned on me. It was so insulting—and now I’m like, You know what? Maybe I am writing for women. Not just for women, but I am a woman! And the fact that that’s something that literary women writers don’t talk about…I find that a little confusing, and I wonder if that makes younger literary women writers feel like there’s something less valuable to that.

The Rumpus Interview With Julia Fierro (via therumpus)

This quote was pulled from an interview I did for The Rumpus with Julia Fierro, author of Cutting Teeth and creator of the Sackett Street Writer’s Workshop. Talking with Julia was one of my most eye-opening conversations; as we sat down to dinner, I felt every during moment as if I was in the hands of a master. Julia understands everything from the bones of what goes into crafting a story to the politics that surrounds its release in the literary community, and talking through that entire scope as a young writer hoping to one day follow her path was, in so many ways, a lesson for me.

 “We made the short and the feature in response to a bunch of romantic comedies that were about unplanned pregnancy and ended in childbirth,” she explains. “I liked Knocked Up a lot, and I liked Juno and Waitress. But they are the reason why we made this movie as a reaction. I enjoyed watching them, but it didn’t ring true to me.” 
The choice to terminate a pregnancy is rarely shown anywhere in our culture, she continues: “Especially in movies, they never let the woman make the other choice — or even say the word ‘abortion.’” (x)
