Podcasts for Writers

New on my writing workshop page: podcasts for writers. To date these include:

On Decluttering Your Writing or, Respecting the Integrity of Narrative Design: The Interior Decoration Analogy
My answer to the inevitable first question in my writing workshops. From the series on creative writing here on the "Madam Mayo" blog. (About 7 minutes.)

"Twelve Tips to Help You Hang in There and Finish Your Novel"
Adapted from a blog post for "Madam Mayo," a guest blog post for "Work-in-Progress" and the Writer's Center's blog, "First Person Plural." Also part of a talk for the Writer's Center's "First Friday" lecture series in Leesburg, Virginia. (About 12 minutes.)

"The Writing Life: A Report from the Field"
A panel discussion at the Artlantic Festival at the Writers Center, May 22, 2010, with Yours Truly, David Taylor, Alan Elsner, Kevin Quirk, and moderator Jessie Seigal. (About an hour and 16 minutes)

P.S. More resources for writers here.

I'll be offering a one day workshop on "Techniques of Fiction" at the Writer's Center on Saturday September 24, 2011, and an extended two day version of the same for the San Miguel Workshops in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, in February 2012. I may offer a workshop with Dancing Chiva in Mexico City this summer. I'll be posting updates on the workshop schedule page. (Want the news?
