Podcasting fiction is a legitimate and effective way to get your work in front of an entirely new audience who may or may not have heard of you. There are a number of podcasts that specialize in various literary forms that you can choose from.
One such podcast is The Cast of Wonders podcast. Cast of Wonders specializes in YA fiction, a wholly underserved area of writing in my opinion. That’s why I was especially happy to have the chance to talk to Marguerite Kenner, the podcast’s editor. I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say, there is a lot of goodness in our interview. I know I will be writing some stories especially for Cast of Wonders going forward.
I also just had my first experience as a presenter at our local Young Writer’s Conference. It was a very rewarding day that I hope to repeat again next year. I talk about the day and what I took away from it in the Tips and Typos section of the show.
Lastly, Parsec award nomination season is upon us once again. I Please take a few minutes to nominate Get Published. I will include the link to the nomination page in the show notes.
I hope you enjoy it.
