8 Essential Podcasts for Writers

4. Keeping Writers Inspired

While routine is the engine, engagement with ideas and possibilities, aka inspiration, is the fuel. Write-minded, now in its fourth year, is a weekly podcast for writers billed as a podcast for those “craving a unique blend of inspiration and real talk about the ups and downs of the writing life. Hosted by Brooke Warner of She Writes and Grant Faulkner of National Novel Writing Month (#NaNoWriMo), each theme-focused episode of Write-minded features an interview with a writer, author, or publishing industry professional. Recent programs include Morgan Talty on “Craft as a Shaper of Story,” Kwame Mbalia and Namina Forna discuss “For the Love of Fantasy,” and Leesa Cross Smith on “Writing with Sensuality.”
