VOTM: What’s the most unusual experience you’ve had at a reading?
HILT: At a Chuck Palahniuk reading the week before Thanksgiving, I won a plastic turkey by blowing up an 6ft inflatable Oscar statue faster than everyone else in the audience. Really? Is that a surprise? No. It’s not.
Jessica Hilt likes to pretend that she’s some ethereal and mysterious writer of beautiful things but she usually ends up writing about body fluids and sadness. She’s a graduate of the Clarion Writers’ Workshop and wants constant reassurance that she doesn’t need an MFA. You can find her work in Bourbon Penn, Fanzine, and the anthology States of Terror.
Come see Jessica read at 3rdSpace in San Diego on Thursday, June 9 at 7:30pm.
