If season one of our Transposition podcast was about sharing the voices of our contributors at a time when so many venues were silenced, season two was about inviting others in. We added Mitchell Evenson as an associate producer, and he created our new theme music and helped shape the season. We brought on more guests to expand and deepen the context of our content. We interviewed our first visual artist on the podcast, Zoe Walsh. With all of these new additions, we found a common theme.
2020 was the Year of Online Expansion for Exposition Review. When faced with a global pandemic, we took our WriteGirl workshop online, launched our Act/Break issue online, and kicked off our own literary podcast, Transposition. Host and Stage & Screen editor Laura Rensing brought us six episodes of readings, conversation, and craft. We’re already hard at work on Season 2!
But maybe you need something in between the seasons—something a little outside the norm. Well, you’re in luck, because here to scratch that itch is co-editor and previous podcast host Mellinda Hensley with a special, between-the-seasons episode of Transposition.
In 2020, Exposition Review kicked off our own literary podcast, Transposition. Following the readings of our Vol. V: “Act/Break” contributors for our issue launch, Transposition has evolved into a full summer series. Laura Rensing, Stage & Screen Editor and founding member of the Editorial Board, has guided us through a comprehensive look at Exposition Review’s other published pieces and authors. With readings from the writers themselves and short interviews to follow, we’ve been able to explore more thoroughly the diverse worlds our contributors have created. After all, Transposition’s title was inspired by the idea “to perform a piece of music in a key other than the one in which it is written” and we are so proud to have brought these works into new forms. As we all close the end of season one, join us in reflecting on this endeavor, and take a deeper dive into all the brilliant work of our contributors!
