Karin Lin-Greenberg

For the past couple of summers we have skyped with Karin for a lesson about exteriority and interiority.  The novelists have found Karin's insights and writing exercises particularly illuminating since so many have been trying to move their plot with interior writing rather than exterior.  Several novelists have checked back in after a few months and commented that they keep Karin's lesson posted above their desk.  


"Karin Lin-Greenberg is a connoisseur of screwy family dynamics and outrageous situations. The ten innovative and diverse stories in this debut collection cover a lot of territory, from a pig on a city bus to the special event 'Things Inside of Other Things' at the Half and Half Multicultural Club of Sun Meadow High School. Here you will meet the man who smashes loaves of grocery store bread for the good of society, and you'll witness the Running of the Brides at Filene's Basement. Lin-Greenberg makes joyful sense of it all. What a pleasure it has been to read these wise and wonderful stories." Bonnie Jo Campbell, bestselling author of Once Upon a River
