During the life of the TIA House Talks Podcast, our team has had the privilege of interviewing exceptional authors and discussing their work. These interviews have been illuminating, insightful, funny, sad, and beyond our expectations. We are grateful for the opportunity to bring these talks to you. In this episode, we will be presenting a short form anthology in which we are showcasing just the creative writing. We are delighted to present work by Terese Mason Pierre, Sheung-King, and Tenille Campbell. All of these wonderful authors will appear in future TIA House Talks interviews.
