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 Aaliyah Green shares her experiences writing in Conjure and Afro-American folklore. By tapping into these approaches, she explores her understanding of her inner-self, her family, and her writing.
