The Writer’s Block is an ongoing video series of interviews with visiting writers at City of Asylum/Pittsburgh. In these Q&A’s, conducted on Sampsonia Way, writers sit down with us to discuss literature, their craft, and career. View all previous interviews here.

In April 2013, Cuban writer Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo visited Pittsburgh as a part of his U.S. trip. He read at a City of Asylum/Pittsburgh event held at Bar Marco in the Strip District. Before the reading, Lazo sat down with Sampsonia Way to talk about how he views himself as a writer, his least favorite interview questions, and why he can’t stop writing.
