FDU MFA Alum Jen Werner’s Writerly States
Writerly States is a documentary series and living archive that explores, through video interviews, the world of working and publishing writers of all genres. “This project is a work of preservation and, hopefully, an extension of the Great American Narrative,” states FDU MFA alum Jen Werner. “Like America, Writerly States is an experiment. My hypothesis is that however much we’re connected via the Internet, it still means something to be a writer from Texas, or to be from Seattle and living in Chicago, to be a native New Yorker, or Californian. Writerly States is about discovering what it means to be a writer in America now.” All interviews are filmed, edited, and produced by Jen.
