Thoughts Aloud features writers contemplating their art and creative writing process while sharing in conversation, with the hope of helping fellow writers and artists grow. Produced by Fresno State’s Master of Fine Arts program, the podcast intends to mark and celebrate the presence, progress, and evolution of the university’s MFA students and alumni, capturing, acknowledging, and giving space for them to share their work.
In this dialogue, Fresno writer Elizabeth Marie Bolaños shares the way she uses herself as inspiration to shape her characters, and also the process she is going through in order to represent communities she is not part of in her writing.
