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 three fascinating people (host, editor, writer) discuss the inside scoop on publishing and writing.

The host is Josh Sippie, the maestro of the Gotham Writers Conference. The guest editor and writer will be ever-changing, each episode focusing on a particular genre or style.

Audience members will be able to ask questions.

Inside Writing Season 1 has concluded. It dealt with publishing a book. If you missed any of the episodes, you can catch them on YouTube, or on any major podcast platform.

Inside Writing Season 2 will commence October 7th. Season 2 will dig into the world of short pieces—short fiction, essays, articles, humor, poetry, etc.

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.
