Writing Spirit: Weekly Inspiration for Writers is currently in its fourth year. We’re a weekly podcast for writers looking for a unique blend of inspiration and real talk about the highs and lows of life as a writer. Hosted by Brooke Warner of She Writes and Grant Faulkner of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), each themed episode of Write-minded features an interview with a writer, author or publishing industry professional.
This year, we’re featuring a book trend at the end of each episode to keep listeners up to date with what they need to know about the book industry. Brooke and Grant bring to this weekly podcast their shared spirit of community, collaboration, and a deep belief that everyone is a writer and that everyone’s story matters.
