As fall comes to a close and winter is almost upon us, season one of borrowed solace: the podcast is coming to an end. We are excited to come back in the new year with more guests, more fun topics, and more of what we are all about—community. Thank you so much for listening and being apart of our venture into the realm of podcasting. See you next year!
Episode ten of borrowed solace: the podcast features story time with Eowyn Randall. Eowyn Randall has an MFA in creative writing from the University of Pittsburgh, a city she discovered she loved while spending a year traveling North America by bus and reading the stories of other journeys. She still lives, writes, and reads there. Particularly interested in genres, she’s constantly looking for new ways to blur the boundaries between them. Her work has appeared in A Lonely Riot & borrowed solace.
