I'm not sure if I wrote this as a dare for her, or as a dare for myself.
Got invited to see @JoyceCarolOates at the same time as I have my story workshopped in grad school.— Matthue Roth (@matthue) November 13, 2013
I picture going to see @JoyceCarolOates, speaking to her afterward, and her yelling at me that I should have stayed in workshop.— Matthue Roth (@matthue) November 13, 2013
Actually, @JoyceCarolOates, it's more like a fantasy. (Though I will probably be responsible. Sigh.)— Matthue Roth (@matthue) November 13, 2013
(By the way, if you don't have a story due in your grad school workshop, you should go to this. And listen to every word she says, because she is a legend, and then brag about it to me and tell me every word.)
