Good roundtable discussion to inspire writers.
A group of writers lay out all the tips, tricks and pitfalls for aspiring writers, an unfortunate yet justified time limit of 15 minutes is in place so as not to take the listener away from their writing. Out early.
This podcast makes you want to write.
Here is a podcast worth listening to...even if you're not a sci-fi/horror/fantasy writer. Brandon and Dan's points on writing are always useful. Probably the most practical writing podcast going today and dispite Howard's tendancy to play a symphony on his own horn, the 15 minutes still do the trick. And they are smart (should be longer though!!!)
I like writing
One of my favourite podcasts. Sometimes funny, but definatly always informative and filled with really good advice for writers of all levels. and the writing prompts at the end are also awesome.
