Freelance Writing Direct is My New Podcast

I’m so excited to share the announcement that I have a podcast with my amazing friend and colleague (and former ASJA president) Sherry Beck Paprocki. It’s on Spotify, iTunes and all the good places. It’s called Freelance Writing Direct! (Yay)! You may remember that I once did a members-only podcast for ASJA called ASJA Direct.

When I thought of the idea of doing this podcast, I knew that Sherry was the partner I wanted, and I’m so happy she said YES!

During this short, sound-bite filled podcast we will cover everything the creative writer, freelance writer or author needs to know to move forward in their creativity and their career. 

We will share how the sauce is made, tips and tricks to give you a leg up in the marketplace, and lots of fun interviews with writers who are generous with their own advice. We’ll also offer advice from our combined 45+ years of experience in publishing as editors, writers, authors and speakers.

We’ll also evolve as you do, and break down pitches, share essays, and give you writing and career prompts. 

We already have 7 episodes up, with a lot more in the can. Episodes will release every Thursday and we are in the top 15% of new releases, which is so exciting!

Here is a taste from our first episode here.

And here is the episode introducing me and Sherry.

You can find us on Spotify and iTunes.
