Episode 3: Writing During a Pandemic with Danielle Lee

We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming (aka the episodes we recorded before COVID-19) to bring you a special series about writing and teaching during a global pandemic.

Our first guest for this series is Dr. Danielle Lee, Visiting Assistant Professor of English at SUNY Old Westbury. In this episode, we talk to Danielle about teaching online, processing trauma through art, and documenting the narratives that emerge during a crisis. You can follow Danielle on Twitter @dlitephul.

Our theme song is “4 am” by Makaih Beats. You can subscribe to the podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher and follow us on Twitter @writingremixpod.

“Moments like this are when we get some of our best writing, at its most authentic and raw.”

“As an archivist, I see these narratives, these social media posts, these blog entries, things on YouTube–these are our modern archival documents.”

Danielle Lee

“We have to remember that as writers, as appreciators of literature, we study literature for its representation of the human condition. And we have to remember our humanity most of all, above everything else…We can be physically isolated, but we don’t have be creatively isolated. Share. Reach out. Create.”

Danielle Lee
