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 Esmeralda Gamez talks about writing about trauma, including the sharing of those traumas with those who may hold a role in her such pain, in order to find peace and home in herself.
