Customer Reviews

Better than a Writing Class

You could seriously learn how to write great fiction by just listening to this podcast! It’s like taking a writing class but even better. They are so smart and helpful – my only complaint is that they talk about subjects/use terms I have no clue about so I have to look them up, but that’s part of the learning process.

Think about donating because that keeps them going.

I wonder if they read the reviews

As an aspiring writer these are the exact topics I am struggling with and need advice. Sometimes when I see the title of a podcast that I believe could help me I get excited. Unfortunately, the hosts of the podcast spend more time tooting their own horns and cracking the most unfunny jokes than providing substantial advice. Please, for your listeners’ sake, all of you need to quit trying to sound like the smartest in the room and just TEACH ME HOW TO WRITE BETTER.

Good writing podcast that needs revisions

Good podcast for new and experienced writers. The best episodes are when they are discussing a particular writing topic as a group as opposed to interviewing an author. Also, they've gotten a bit too into all the PC nonsense lately. Isn't this podcast supposed to be about writing? We don’t' need the soapboxing.
