There is a backstory weaved into each book project. To explore the creative process, I connect with authors, writers, editors, publishers, and an array of creative souls to have a conversation centered on how they developed their stories to completing their works of art. Each episode is an opportunity for us to explore mindsets, pearls of wisdom, and the experiences that began our journey as an author from the moment we put pen to paper.
Creatives have an instinctual need to creative; it is no different for writers. It is a calling from deep within that cannot, and should not, be stifled. We all ask – what do I write, how do I do this, and I doing it right.
Isolation and loneliness is a topics that comes up when speaking to writers. We spend long durations of time alone in our space focused on the writing apparatus. That alone time is both a blessing and a derailleur.
Writers seeking a community who understand the joys and challenges of the writing process, this podcast will encourage you to share the stories only you can pen. We share our personal experiences and insights as a guide to help you, the writer, on your journey.
You’ll hear from New York Times best selling authors, writers, editors, folks who know marketing, publishers and those who love the craft of writing. Every episode is an opportunity to learn actionable insights to inspire you to live your dreams.
Pour a mug of tea and listen to conversations focused on the art of writing books. Podcast guests visit the virtual Pen to Paper Press studio to chat about all things centered around writing, editing, publishing, and marketing. We explore insights ranging from overcoming writer’s block to self-editing to getting books into the hands of readers.
It’s time. No more pondering the idea. Write ‘that’ book. Your words have power. YOUR story matters!
There is a backstory weaved into every book written. It’s the element that cements the foundation of the story and breathes life into the characters. Dr. Dawn Menge, author of the Queen Vernita educational series and Dragon’s Breath, joins Cindy in the Pen to Paper Press Podcast studio to talk about her children’s book series, travels, and the students who appear in her books. Pour yourself a mug of hot cocoa and enjoy this entertaining conversation focused on writing about life experiences, publishing children’s books, and self-promotion in this episode of Pen to Paper Press Podcast.
