Inside Writing

Here we take you inside the world of writing and publishing from right inside your home.

For free. 

Inside Writing is a Zoom talk show happening every Wednesday afternoon from 1-2 pm, Eastern Time—where the host and guests (writers, agents, editors) discuss the inside scoop on publishing and writing.

The host is Josh Sippie, the maestro of the Gotham Writers Conference. The guests will be ever-changing, each episode focusing on a particular genre or aspect of writing.

Audience members will be able to ask questions.

Inside Writing Season 4 “The Professionals,” starts August 4th. One-on-one interviews with people who have carved out creative careers for themselves.

Inside Writing Seasons 1, 2 and 3 have concluded. Season 1 dealt with publishing books, Season 2 with publishing short pieces, and Season 3 with the writing life. All seasons can be found on YouTube, or on any major podcast platform.

The best way to get “in the door” is to be on our mailing list, so you’re notified as soon as new sessions are posted.

I like how honest and straightforward both guest speakers were about the publishing industry. They were transparent and helpful in finding neat ways to build a platform and stand out to a potential agent or publishing company!
