Indie-Lit Pop Quiz: Michael J. Seidlinger

Trevor Sensor interviewed me for the Brooklyn-based site, Alt Citizen. Here’s a sample from the interview:


1. What was the last book you read? Did you like it or nah?

Fantasy by Ben Fama. Loved it. Absolutely top notch stuff. Fama’s got his own idea of what poetry can be and he’s showing us some of those possibilities in the book.

2. Thoughts on David Foster Wallace or Jonathan Franzen?

DFW. Franzen?

3. What are your writing habits?

Write every day, 1500 word minimum. No exceptions.

4. How do you party? How often?

It used to be every other day, now it’s maybe twice a week. Whiskey mostly.

5. Any writer you want to give a shout out to?

Porochista Khakpour for her tireless support of indie lit as well as literature as a whole. She has written a modern masterpiece, The Last Illusion, and is consistently vocal and supportive of writers in the community. We’re all in this together and Porochista is proof that some of the best people around are in this community.
