Unbound Book Festival Author Interview – Steve Yates


On today’s edition of The Missouri Review Soundbooth Podcast, we talk with author Steve Yates. Yates was recently a featured author at the Unbound Book Festival, held April 21-22 at Stephens College in Columbia, Missouri. His new novel, The Legend of the Albino Farm, centers on “thriving family” that became “saddled with an unshakable spook tale” (Unbridled Books).

The Legend of the Albino Farm will be Yates’ third book. In this chat, he discusses various elements of story writing, inspirations, how he heard of The Missouri Review, and a possible future project.

In addition to The Missouri Review, Yates has  been published in the Ontario Review, South Carolina Review, Elder Mountain: A Journal of Ozarks Studies, and Kansas Quarterly/ Arkansas Review, and has won the Juniper Prize in Fiction. He is currently the marketing director at University Press of Mississippi in Jackson.
