Podcasts for Writers

podIf you’re an author looking for inspiration, want to learn how to overcome writer’s block, or just need an incentive to write in your journal, these podcasts may be just what you’re searching for. Compiled by MediaBistro, these podcasts feature authors, journalists, and booksellers. So far, there are 5 podcasts in the series. Here are some examples from their website:

Description: Writing Excuses is one of the first and longest-running podcasts about writing. It launched in 2008 and is in its 10th season. Yet you can still power through the entire series in a relatively short time. Episodes are just long enough to give listeners solid information in an entertaining format. To get an idea of the voice, the podcast’s tongue-in-cheek tagline is: “Fifteen minutes long, because you’re in a hurry, and we’re not that smart.”
Must-hear episode: Season 9, Episode 47: Conversation With a Bookseller. In this episode, guest Sara Glassman, a bookseller and reviewer, advises on query letters, book covers, book signings and how to make your first page stand out to retailers. This is an important listen for writers in need of ways to market their final product.
Excerpt: “For self-published authors, being able to engage with the customers [in a bookstore] and say, ‘Hi, would you like to take a look at my book’ or ‘How are you doing today?’ is great. But don’t say, ‘Do you want to buy my book?”
