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 Erika Ceballos talks about her use of magical realism to explore themes of transformation, social change, and survival, all with the feeling of community as the idea that lies in the center.
