Author Jeffrey Cheatham II and Host Dre Davis Chop it Up About the Craft and Business of Writing, the Subliminal Messages in Children’s Literature, and More
Artist-to-Artist is a podcast focusing on the daily life and grind of Seattle’s Black creative professionals.
Hosted by Seattle’s very own Dre Davis, Artist-to-Artist offers insights from and interviews with creatives from all walks – from writers to painters, musicians and spoken word artists, and all shades, in between.
In this episode, children’s book author Jeffrey L. Cheatham II talks about the challenges and rewards of being independent, the incident that motivated him to start writing, and the stereotypes surrounding Black folks and literature.
Dre and Jay even tackle the subject of “author beef,” and how to best handle it when a writer you didn’t send for comes for you.
