DESK SPACE Who?
ZOE WHITTALL Zoe Whittall, novelist, poet, unicorn.
DS When did you start writing, publish your first book or when are you publishing your next?
ZW Started writing at 18. Published at 25. Fourth book, Precordial Thump, out in October 08.
DS Where do you write?
ZW At cafes in my neighbourhood, or lately, in the blue chair featured in the photograph.
DS Why do you work where you do?
ZW Right now, I am broke so can't spend tons of cash in a cafe with my laptop, so I've made myself comfortable in this cozy corner. It's a quiet spot, close enough to the coffee maker, far enough from the TV with fairly inconsistent cell reception so I can avoid my text-addiction.
DS What are you working on now?
ZW Final substantive edits on a new novel, copyedits on the poetry book, a book review, homework, my resume and to-do list.
