Customer Reviews

A fabulous insider look at all kinds of writing

I’m a professional writer of both fiction and nonfiction and love this podcast because, firstly, I spend most of my time alone in my office, writing and researching, so it’s wonderful to hear fellow writers talk about the nitty gritty of how they get story ideas, how they pitch them, how they approach their overall careers, how they’ve started magazines, gotten book deals, broken into major markets, etc. These are things that need demystifying and as a host, Keysha is wonderful at taking the time to dig deep into these writers’ processes so that listeners can follow in their footsteps. Whatever type of writing you do, you’ll learn from this podcast and find some camaraderie (and plenty of new writers to read!).

Excellent resource

These interviews are a must listen if you write prose. The questions asked of the writer guests are exactly the kinds of questions other writers would pose, and the discussions about process are insightful and helpful. Plus, many of the interviews are appended by conversations with editors who have worked with these writers, which gives a great behind the scenes look at journals and indie publishers.
