Janet Burroway is a literary legend, not only for her glorious books, which include her memoir Losing Tim and her novels Raw Silk, and The Buzzards, but her iconic writing textbook Writing Fiction. which is considered the bible to college writing students. In her retirement from teaching she has been feeding another passion of hers: theater. She consumes it ravenously and writes for it and has desperately missed it during the pandemic. She shares her thoughts on making costumes for Brian Cox and Ian McKellen back in her London days, adoring the Chicago theater community, and what it's like to write something and sit in the audience and see the magic that comes forth.
