Anna discusses her love of southern gothic, how reading aloud gives her great pleasure, and how mental health is affected by reading and writing.

Show Notes

I chat with the lovely author, teacher, mentor, and mental health advocate Anna Vaught all about bibliotherapy, southern gothic, reading aloud, and mentoring. We discuss her love for poetry and horror stories, mental health and the myth of recovery, and the difficulties involved in being editied.

There’s a small trigger warning as we lightly discuss trauma in this episode
