Ep. 91: Sarah Ann Noel | NYU Writers Workshop in Paris

When she became a mother, Sarah Ann Noel turned to autofiction as a way to process her own childhood. In this episode, she sits down with Jared to share how those reflections became a novel about teenagers growing up in a high-control Evangelical environment. Plus, she talks about shifting from magazine editing to creative writing, attending jet-lagged residencies in Paris, and getting feedback on her work from her literary heroes.

Sarah Ann Noel is a writer and editor of fiction and non-fiction. She holds an MFA from NYU’s Writers Workshop in Paris. Her first short story will appear in After Dinner Conversations in April 2024. She is the Co-Founder of the Read Write Brew reading series in Denver. Find her at sarahannnoel.com or on Instagram @sarahannnoel.
