Fire and Flour is the result of over 30 hours of oral histories conducted with my family in Martinique. I was awarded the Schiff Fellowship in order to pursue research for my creative writing thesis, and used the money to fly to Martinique to conduct my interviews in person. A creative “novella”, Fire and Flour compiles and remembers a history of deep personal importance.
