 INTERVIEW 

David Levithan

El Templo #30 (octubre 2012) por Javier Ruescas y Cris Menéndez


You are an editor for Scholastic. How does this job affect your work as a writer? What do you like the most about being an author and an editor as well?

I love playing with other people’s words as much as I love playing with my own, so writing and editing allows me to do both. Editing definitely exposes me to all these brilliant writerly minds, and no doubt informs the way I use my own.

How was your childhood and teenage years? Did you always know what you wanted to be as a grown-up?

I don’t think it would come as any surprise to anyone who knew me when I was young that I turned out to be a writer and an editor. Words were always the things I loved to use most. It was in no way an unpredictable path for me, and luckily my family and friends were all very supportive.

We have read that from time to time you arrange writing retreats with other fellow writers to work without disturbance. How are these “writer's havens” organized? What benefits come from them?

I am lucky to have a lot of writer friends, and every now and then, we just need to escape the city to get writing done. It’s a great balance – a lot of typing during the day, and a lot of fun and conversation and wine at night.

You have written several novels in tandem with other writers. Rachel Cohn is one of your regulars. What do you like about working with her? Do you have anything new planned together?

The best thing about Rachel and me writing together is the energy we draw from one another – and the way we always keep one another on our feet. Right now, she’s in the middle of writing a four-book solo series (which is awesome, and starts with the novel BETA) … but hopefully when she’s done, she’ll find me waiting at the other end.

If you could choose any writer, alive or dead, who would you choose to write a novel with? 

Besides the authors I’ve already written with, I dream of writing a novel with Libba Bray. And sometimes the dreams are really inappropriate.

You also have a collaboration done with a photographer: Every Me, Every You, a combination of photos and text. How was that experience? How did you two organize the work?

It was really revelatory – Jonathan gave me photos one at a time, not knowing what I was writing, and I drew a narrative from them. All collaborations are a challenge in some way, and I loved the challenge this gave me, and as a result I created something I would have never, ever written on my own.
