We loved this interview at Fiction Writers Review so much that we wanted to make sure that all our Grub Daily subscribers got a chance to read it.  In it, current Novel Incubator instructor Michelle Hoover interviews her former Incubator co-teacher Lisa Borders about their experience in the program, how teaching has informed their own writing,  how Grub is like a wonderful "Island of Misfit Toys," and much more.  It's a rich interview--dive in!
