Collaborators’ Q&A: Writer Paula Carter: …As the creator of something, you are often too close to it to understand what others see. As the reader, you react to something as it is, whole. As the writer, a piece always has a longer more complicated story to tell. Artist Anya Ermak-Bower: I just love Broadsided. It’s like a spoonful of chocolate ganache at a … church potluck? Haven’t been to one, but heard a bit about food there. Is it true?
