In this episode, Nicole Pendleton sits down with writer and University of Central Florida MFA in Creative Writing candidate, David K. Gibson, affectionately known as “Gib.” In Part I, their conversation weaves from his reading event project, Kerouac Karaoke, honoring the work of peers, and the potential benefits of literary citizenship and public readings in Orlando and the literary community at large.
David K. Gibson writes fiction, essays, and journalism, and he usually writes them sideways. His work is often experimental in form, and frequently touches on themes of grief and estrangement, souls adrift in a changing world, and oversized root vegetables. He has perhaps read too much Pynchon.
