Take 5 with Clara Chow

Is physical distancing expressing a fear of commitment, or a survival instinct? Will the future see us obsessed with beauty, or discard the notion altogether? Take 5 with Clara Chow, author of Dream Storeys as she looks back at her stories in the new light of a post COVID-19 world, and shares how picking up new hobbies during the circuit breaker have changed her writing process.

Clara Chow is the author of two story collections, Dream Storeys (Ethos, 2016) and Modern Myths (Math Paper Press, 2018). She has written two plays, Birth Days and Make Sure, and was an honorary fellow at the International Writing Program 2019 in Iowa City.
