“The sheer communal feel [to the Writers’ League] alone is stunning, truly. I’m amazed with the conferences, and the agents and editors who attend them.”
-Enzo Milo Michel
A member of the Writers’ League for six months, Enzo Milo Michel lives in Killeen.
Scribe: In what genre(s) do you write?
Enzo Milo Michel: Mostly literary fiction, some experimental.
Scribe: What author would you most like to have a drink with, and what’s the first question you would ask them?
Enzo Milo Michel: Kafka, hands down. My first question would be, assuming he has some consciousness of the 21st century academic world, “what would you change in the American Philosophy and English departments?”
Scribe: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?
EMM: Probably something written by Nietzsche, a Sci-Fi anthology, or a good detective novel!
Scribe: What have you learned from your association with the Writers’ League?
EMM: The sheer communal feel alone is stunning, truly. I’m amazed with the conferences, and the agents and editors who attend them. They’re incorporated at every turn into the hospitable and warm tone set by the Writer’s League, adapting as if they too are members. It’s unprecedented.
Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?
EMM: I have to say, the current projects alone don’t have me looking too far. It’s safe to say, I’m focused on where the writing will take me within the next stroke of my pencil! Let’s keep it there.
Scribe: Here at the Writers’ League, we love sharing book recommendations. What’s one Texas-related book that has come out within the past year that you couldn’t put down?
EMM: Latest reads usually are short stories, but one I enjoyed particularly was The Boathouse by Tim Griffith.
Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!
EMM: I’m currently working on my first novel! For updates on short stories, essays, and that novel visit my website. There you will find updates on my projects and social media links.
