WritersCast

Hosted ByDavid Wilk

WritersCast is the voice of writers and the publishing industry. Host David Wilk interviews authors of new and forthcoming fiction, poetry and non-fiction books, talking with them about their work as writers, the stories they tell, the subjects they write about and the books they write. Writers reveal the thoughts and ideas behind their writing, and talk about a wide variety of topics of interest to their readers. Writerscast also features a series called "Publishing Talks" where publishers, technologists, and other members of the publishing community talk about the past, present, and future of books, writers and publishing. There is even a series called AuthorsVoices, where writers read their work so you can hear how the words sound when spoken by the writers who composed them.
