Can a relationship built on movie-watching survive? Today’s show features our Fall Contest First Place winner, Rome, by all means Rome, by Kevin Broccoli. Prose contest judge Katie McDougall said “Rome, by all means Rome, takes the reader into the theater of a failing marriage, characterized by the couple’s obsession with the movies. The self-assured voice, artful structure, and robust use of metaphor work in tandem to create a nuanced narrative of the relationship and of the narrator’s own sense of self.” Afterward we talk with Kevin about his own experience with relationships and movies, and the inspiration for this story. Kevin also reveals how his background in theater influences his approach to writing. Most importantly, we learn his secret to writing a short story every week.
