Thank you for the suggestions so far for good books about writing. Please continue to add your favorites, and I’ll post the updated list in a week or two.
This weekend I’ll be taking a short road trip to visit family—about 5-6 hours of driving each way. In preparation, I’m downloading plenty of episodes of some of my favorite writing podcasts, listed below, which can turn any travel time into a micro retreat. What are your favorite writing podcasts?
Joanna Penn’s podcast covers “interviews, inspiration and information on writing and creativity, publishing options, book marketing and creative entrepreneurship”
Each month New Yorker fiction editor, Deborah Treisman, asks an author to choose and read a favorite New Yorker story, which they then discuss. One of my all-time faves.
“[E]xcerpts from lectures given by guest writers, editors, and agents at the Odyssey Writing Workshop.” Some real gems in these short pieces.
“New Yorker fiction writers read their stories.”
“Writing Excuses is a fast-paced, educational podcast for writers, by writers… Our goal is to help our listeners become better writers. Whether they write for fun or for profit, whether they’re new to the domain or old hands, Writing Excuses has something to offer. We love to write, and our listeners do, too.”
