SORT BY Relevancy
What do you get if you cross a syndicated newspaper columnist with a business book author on a Pearson imprint with an entrepreneur who owns Pro Blog Service and novelist who's the Spring 2016 writer-in-residence at the Jack Kerouac House in Orlando, Florida?
Erik Deckers, this week’s guest of Behind the Prose.
I interviewed Erik in August, just before he relocated to Florida. (Ironically, he was already planning a move there just before learning that he won the coveted residency).
By now, I’m sure he’s settled in and enjoying the “vibrant literary community” of Orlando that he talks about in this episode.
But before we get to the Kerouac Project, we go through his decades long career as a humor columnist and his book deals on Que Publishing.
In this interview you’ll also learn:
The rhetorical move he started using in his humor and now can’t stop
How travel writing led him to making an activist move that sent one of his posts viral and cost him a job
His trick to churning out content on a weekly basis
There’s also some discussion of Pluto. And if you listened to Sean Ennis’ episode, you might find this kinda spooky. Well, it is Halloween week. Or maybe I’m just subconsciously drawing this Pluto stuff to me. (Remember the Reading-Updike-Keillor thing?)
Either way, like Erik’s buddy Karl the Curmudgeon, I’m still kinda mad about Pluto too. Get show links at behindtheprose.com.
We live in an era where it is more important to know what the purose of Pyramids is, rather than what a candidates policies would be in the Middle East. The media, often referred to as the 4th branch of government, is more focused on their political agendas than on legitimate vetting of candidates. Why? How do we fix this? Is this legitimate journalism or not?
