Description

Blair Braverman is a nonfiction writer and dogsledder whose work has appeared in This American Life, The Atavist, Buzzfeed, Orion, The Best Women's Travel Writing and elsewhere. She is training for the Iditarod, a 1100-mile dogsled race across Alaska. Her first book, Welcome to the Goddamn Ice Cube, was released from Ecco/HarperCollins in July. This week on Writers Who Don't Write Blair speaks to us about writing while traveling the world as a dogsledder and the isolating factors of both, adapting a piece of longform writing for radio, how and why she structured her book the way she did, her process for some of her longform nonfiction journalism, and what it was like to write the story of her transgender partner.
