I first met Jaym Gates and Erika Holt via Twitter. Jaym started out as a writer, added reporting, administrating and promotional work and then made a joke on twitter that led to her becoming an editor. Erika writes speculative fiction, is an intern for award winning anthologist Jennifer Brozek and reads slush for Scape, the e-zine of YA speculative fiction.
Both ladies have a lot of great things to say about putting together an anthology including common mistakes writers make and why some stories are chosen while others are not.
In the feedback section, I have a question from DanDanTheArtMan about podcasting my stories and what I’ve learned.
Thanks for listening.
