Smoky Mountain Air Podcast: David Brill talks about his GSMA title Into the Mist and writing for Smokies Life magazine

On your way to #OptOutside today, listen to our new podcast episode featuring David Brill, outdoor writer and contributor to GSMA's Smokies Life magazine. Brill is the author of Into the Mist, a collection of real-life stories depicting people caught in extreme situations in the Smokies and their dramatic struggles for survival. Into the Mist is published by GSMA and available at SmokiesInformation.org

“I love making story assignments to David Brill,” says Smokies Life editor Frances Figart, “not only because I know the resulting articles will be thoroughly researched and written with quintessential craftsmanship, but also I’ll get to hear from David all along the way about his creative process, which thrills me to no end. He is articulate, exacting, and truly passionate about this park and about writing in such a way as to bring its cultural and natural resources to life on the page for his audience.”

During our conversation, Brill shared excerpts from several of his works and reflected on how he came to be a writer after hiking the entire Appalachian Trail. Check out some of his stories in our 'missing issues,' out-of-print issues of Smokies Life that can be read online at SmokiesInformation.org/MissingIssues. GSMA members receive the magazine in the mail twice a year as a primary benefit of joining the association. Learn more about GSMA memberships or purchase previous issues at SmokiesInformation.org.
