On the Writership Podcast, professional book editors Leslie Watts and Clark Chamberlain critique five pages of fiction from writers who are, or soon hope to be, traditionally or independently published. The submissions come from actual authors who understand they may need help seeing the flaws in their stories and are brave enough to share this experience so that you might improve your writing too.

Great podcast, exactly what I’ve been waiting for

I love the various author podcasts out there, but this is the only one I’ve found that 1) appeals to me as an indie, and 2) provides good nuts-and-bolts information on the craft itself. Specifically: editing and revision. The hosts are fun to listen to, great personalities, and they show admirable respect and care for the writing samples they edit on the show. Looking forward to many more episodes!

This podcast is amazing!

I have fallen in love with this podcast after only a few episodes. The advice is so incredibly valuable and informative. I will be waiting anxiously for each new episode. This is definitely on my must-listen list.

Required listening for all writers!

This is a gem for all writers. Each episode the hosts introduce a new concept or pitfall to look out for in your manuscript. They use real submissions as examples, and more importantly they offer specific fixes.

At the end of each episode, they introduce an editorial mission. They give you one bite-size problem to look for in your manuscript. After only a couple episodes, my manuscript is light years ahead of where it was last week.

Whether your self-publishing or submitting to traditional publishers this is a must listen to for all writers.

Fun to listen to, super actionable, and much appreciated!

Thank you!
