Inside Writing

A Zoom talk show with the inside scoop on writing/publishing/producing, happening Wednesday afternoons, Eastern Time. (Also on YouTube and podcast platforms.)

If you wish to travel deep inside the world of writing, this is the place. The host is Josh Sippie, the maestro of the Gotham Writers Conference. The guests are an ever-changing lineup of writers, agents, editors, producers, and sometimes something else related to the writing world. The hour-long format allows for in-depth discussion plus plenty of time to field questions from the audience.

It happens live Wednesdays 5-6 pm, Eastern Time. But the sessions are recorded, available on YouTube, or in podcast form on any major podcast platform.

Inside Writing Season 5: Breaking In will begin March 2, 2022. We’ll be interviewing writers and creatives who have recently broken into their respective fields.
