Episode 2: “Note this before my (e)Notes”
Today we’ll be joined by literary professional Wesley Matlock. Wesley is the Project Manager for eNotes.com and an avid reader of whatever he can get his hands on. Before life in editing and publishing, he spent many years teaching English Language Arts from Moscow, Russia, to Seattle, Washington. Wesley works with a team of literature enthusiasts who seek to make reading and teaching literature as enjoyable and rewarding as possible. In addition to his work with eNotes, Wesley enjoys gardening, coffee, and talking about speculative fiction with Chris and Oren on the Mythcreants podcast.
Today we’ll be talking with Wesley about the mechanics of an online literature Q&A site (one slightly different from our own!), how Shakespeare is taught in schools, and how the Bard can be used as a point of critique for modern literary genres like science fiction. You can see Wesley’s work on eNotes.com, oweleyes.org, and mythcreants.com.
