On Inspiration, Concept, Voice, and Research

What inspired Womb: a novel in utero? Where did the concept come from? How did the voice develop? What kind of research went into making sure the fantastical story was suspended in plausible fact?

These are some of the questions answered during the question and answer session of the Enoch Pratt’s book launch of Womb: a novel in utero, part of the library’s Writers LIVE! Series. A member of the audience shared this clip, recorded during the session.

If you prefer professional audio, you’ll want to listen to the Enoch Pratt’s official podcast recording of the event—complete with introductions by Judy Cooper and Gregg Wilhelm, and a reading and question and answer session with the author.

But if you prefer bootleg video, and want answers to those specific questions, this is for you.
