I wrote ‘Transatlantic’ during a writing conference of sorts. By writing conference I mean one conference room with fifteen writers, one instructor, two plates of sandwiches, and two hours. We had to tell a story via a list of occupational terms, I chose business travel. Editing it after the conference, it morphed from a simple list but it kept the brevity. Originally, this piece was slightly more uplifting but it didn’t quite work so I made it more ambivalent.
