12. A Couple of Writers

http://acoupleofwriters.com

We really are a ‘couple’ of writers having been married for a blissful 🙂 33 years and enjoying the blessings of four two-legged children and two four-legged ones. Publishing both fiction and non-fiction works for more than a decade, we represent the Venus and Mars of the writing world. We podcast from the beautiful Twin Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul hoping to unlock the keys to writing success for those fumbling with their keychains. And best of all, we do it with flair in a casual, fun atmosphere you’ll want to be a part of!

    Thanks. I love indie podcasts. I believe that #9 and #10 are not currently producing new shows.

    • Didn’t know that. Still some good information from past episodes.

      • Daniel Martone

        Yep, Roundtable is no more, but Lindsay and Adam (who had both become regulars on SPRT) created an offshoot podcast that is great. http://www.thewritingpodcast.com/

    honored to be in the list 😉

  • Great list! Authors are busy people. What’s great about podcasts is that you can multi-task and listen while you drive, exercise, etc.

  • Sarah Pannenberg

    Gotta love a good podcast. They can be so helpful, especially if you’re a new author. At Written Word Media, we just listened to a bunch of podcasts and wrote a post about them! it features some of these and a bunch of others!
