"Unknown Words" is a bi-monthly podcast dedicated to highlighting the work of unpublished or lesser known writers. Each episode, Matthew reads a either a short story, creative non-fiction, or works of poetry then interviews the writer to gain some insight into the work's composition and just maybe that of the author's.

The writing of today's guest, Zulema Renee Summerfield, manages to be quirky and funny but avoid the ironic bitterness often thought to be attached to her kind of humor. She manages to make Mark Zuckerberg, the subject of her story, small and vulnerable and human in a way we often forget people like him always are. While presented in a package of the fantastical, the sentiments between this almost quantum-Zuckerberg and his friend will certainly ring familiar.

Today's story originally appeared in The Heavy Feather Review.

You can find more of her work at her website.

Her book, Everything Faces All Ways at Once, is available in print here and available on Amazon Kindle here.  

 

Conversation Topics: Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook, Stephen King, writing, process, submissions, 50 Shades of Grey, habit, persistence, novels, trauma, past, history, childhood, editing, revision, plot, fame, celebrity, money.
