A special post to tell you about something I’d been meaning to do for a while – start a podcast of my own! Introducing The Silent Town Show, hosted by yours truly, where we talk about pretty much everything to do with writing literary fiction!
I’ve designed the podcast to be a companion to this blog (as is evident in the choice of name 😀). The episodes will be about literary fiction and writing, of course, but the content won’t be quite the same as what I blog about. If I were to categorise the two, I would say that while the blog posts will be more technique oriented, the podcast episodes will be more lifestyle and discussion oriented. There will be exclusive content on both platforms, so please do follow both!
I’ll be honest and say that I don’t know much about podcasts. I’m more of a textual person than an audio-visual person in general, so things like conversations or interviews I would almost always rather read than listen to. But last year, I was invited to participate in a podcast episode about freelance writing on The Writing Cooperative, and that’s when I saw the potential of reaching out to a whole new audience – one that likes listening to its content rather than reading it. And to be honest, some things are just so much easier to talk about rather than write about. So here we are!
I’d love to hear about your ideas for future episodes – tips you want me to cover, lifestyle suggestions you’re looking for, or pretty much anything that we can have conversations about as literary fiction writers. Because ideally, I’d like to make this podcast about us, not just me talking about myself. And if any of you would like to be featured, please do let me know! Drop a comment below or on the Podcast page on Spreaker. We can work out an episode theme.
Hope you enjoy the first episode! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it!
