Episode #6 features an interview with Donna Talarico-Beerman on the process of becoming a small press, running a conference, and balancing her own writing time in there, too. We’re also talking all things writing conference over the next few episodes, and we’ve got brief on-the-spot interviews from Lee Martin, Sue William Silverman, and some lovely writer-participants from the Postgraduate Writing Conference at Vermont College of Fine Arts.

I am blind, I have three books published, and I’m happy to let you know I was just able to download the Brevity podcast on my little contraption that a lot of us who can’t see use to read audio books and listen to podcasts. It’s called a “Victor Reading Stream” and I am eager to start listening!Enter your comment here…
So happy to hear that! I’ll check out Victor Reading Stream and see if there’s any better way for us to interface with that!
I am also blind. I am glad you can listen. I don’t use one of those, but I will look into it. Thank you for the tip.
