Podcast Review: A Must-Listen for Creative Pens
One of the earliest non-fiction podcasts I tuned into was The Creative Penn. It was the ever cheerful voice of Joanna Penn that first introduced me to the many and varied opportunities available to indie authors.
While I need to be caffeinated before listening to her, to keep her bubbly disposition from aggravating the Mrs. Hide that always lurks beneath the surface when I wake up, she has become a weekly voice in my ear, and her optimism is infectious enough to keep me going as I plug away at my first book.
She keeps her subscribers updated on the latest developments in the publishing world, and treats them to interviews with a variety of professionals highlighting different aspects of the life of a creative entrepeneur.
As a bonus, her website is a treasure trove of resources for writers in all phases of their journey.
Do go and check her out, and give the podcast a listen. It never disappoints and I learn a ton of stuff from every episode.
Some of my favourites include:
