This week on Willful, I sat down with Angela Misri (@karmicangel), a Toronto-based journalist and former CBC’er, now a co-host of the podcast, Ada’s Sisters (with @EdenSpodek), and the author of the Portia Adams Adventure Series. In Ep. 4, Angela shares her thoughts on:
• Normalizing intelligence and independence in her female characters.
• Writing about the women of the 1930s
• Boys, and whether they'll read books with a female protagonist.
• Stereotypes publishers need to get past.
Willful is the web series that tracks how artists and creative entrepreneurs work, thrive and survive. We interview one artist a week, then post five three-minute snack films from that interview on YouTube every day.
