Hiromi Goto Interview on Co-op Radio

February 5, 2016

Is blogging still a thing? I’ve fallen off of regular postings. My partner reassures me that I’m micro-blogging on Twitter and I suppose it’s true. A dear writer friend of mine, who is very savvy, has pointed out writing a lot on a blog is basically writing for free, when it’s important that we try…

Interview with CWILA

October 17, 2015

Had a great experience with Canadian Women in the Literary Arts– Tina Northrup asked interesting questions and these are the best kinds of interviews– when the interviewer has us thinking longer and more deeply.

Speaking Tour in Japan

June 15, 2015

I’ve decided to detail my upcoming trip to Japan here, rather than in the Upcoming Events section because, for the most part, I don’t have the exact information on the locations (such as building name, room number, etc.) and some of the events won’t be open to the public. The ones I’m certain that are…

Hiromi Goto nineteenquestions interview

June 16, 2014

Interviews are odd things– they kind of start to blur together because there’s a tendency for interviewers to ask similar kinds of questions, such as, Where do you get your ideas, who are your favourite authors, etc. This interview was a little different because I asked if it could be conducted in the same manner…
