For bestselling poet and author Maggie Smith, sometimes the secret behind making her poetry interesting, unexpected, and surprising comes to "making it weirder." Maggie's unapologetic, unabashed approach to her work is the reason her work has been read by everyone from Meryl Streep to Dr. Jill Biden.
Maggie hits on something essential about successful creativity. How do we be truly honest in our work? Sometimes it means admitting that we DON'T want to write every day. Sometimes it means making sure you don't miss that therapy appointment. Being honest with yourself is the only way you can be certain to be honest in your work.
In this interview, Maggie and Jen also discuss:
- What if feels like to have written a poem that goes viral when there is a mass shooting or other horror
- How to incorporate our everyday experiences into our writing
- The art of paying attention
- How to unlock a good metaphor
- How Maggie navigated her divorce in public and how it became her best-selling book Keep Moving

Isn't it wonderful to hear widely celebrated NYT's best-selling novelists talk about shitty first drafts? Laurie's acclaimed new bestseller One Two Three "wrote hard," for her, and that's OK! For Laurie, the joy comes in the process, whether it's easy, hard, smooth, bumpy, or annoying - that complicated cocktail is what makes the creative process beautiful.
And Laurie gets candid about the other side: PUBLISHING. Sometimes "Creating Out Loud," isn't our first instinct, but it's all apart of what we do as artists. In this conversation, Jen and Laurie also discuss:
- Laurie's passion for creative inclusion
- Fiction v. non-fiction storytelling
- The "Prestige" of "literature v. fiction"
- How and why we should study our craft
- Navigating the world of a transgender child
- Being a story savant
