Working with Words: Amy Espeseth

This week, Amy Espeseth was longlisted for the prestigious Warwick Prize for Writing (UK) for her debut novel, Sufficient Grace, which won the 2009 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for an Unpublished Manuscript, was shortlisted in the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards, and was longlisted for the Stella Prize. Amy is a writer, publisher and academic who lectures in both writing and publishing at NMIT.

We spoke to her about writing to make sense of her world, why writing always seems impossible, and what she learned from John Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath.
