Nate DiMeo's Memory Palace
Nate DiMeo is the voice – and producer – of The Memory Palace, a celebrated storytelling podcast about the past. In each short episode, DiMeo’s evocative, elegiac monologues reach back into history, returning with quiet magic; a flickering of something timeless.
More than many podcasts, The Memory Palace hinges on writing. ‘I'm just looking for some little fleck of something wonderful in the past,’ DiMeo has said of the process. ‘I latch onto that thing that moved me … We know the subject; what's the story? That's the part that takes forever.’
Based in Los Angeles, DiMeo has recently been the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s artist in residence. Other recent writing projects include ghostwriting Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America with the Parks and Recreation writing team, several TV staff writing gigs and a novel in progress.
In a free event at Geelong Regional Library, Nate DiMeo will walk us through a handful of prompts which ultimately blossomed into Memory Palace stories – and discuss how he’s built a creative livelihood around his writing. Hosted by Jon Tjhia.
Nate DiMeo is visiting Melbourne as a guest of the Creative State Summit - Melbourne Museum, 14 -15 June 2018.
