“The trick with writing is a lot of times the more specific, the more universal something becomes. In taking care of a story, if there is something that I don’t quite understand, I’m not going to say, ‘Oh, that’s not related. We’ll take it out.’ I’m going to ask for more. Show me how this is all of us.” (Photo by Stephanie Land)
