It’s episode 127 with Maram Taibah. Maram writes fantasy and has lots to say about world-building and trusting your instincts as a writer.
Maram is a fantasy writer, born in Montreal, Canada. She was raised in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and liked to escape into books from a very early age and from there into the craft of storytelling. In addition to writing fiction, Maram is also a screenwriter and filmmaker. In 2014 she made her first short film Munkeer and in 2016, Don’t Go Too Far, both of which were screened at the Cannes Short Film Corner. She currently lives in Kingston, Ontario and her novel Weathernose is out right now.
