Brevity Podcast Episode #7 Kristen Arnett and Hippocamp

November 16, 2017 § 4 Comments


I told you we should have stayed home and listened to the Brevity Podcast

When you’re wandering the aisles of the local megastore, already tired of Christmas carols you’ve been hearing since Halloween…it’s time to pop in those earbuds and enjoy the latest Brevity Podcast.

Stream the show right from this post, or click over to iTunes, Soundcloud or Stitcher. If you’re subscribed, we’ll show up in your podcast app queue. And wherever you listen or download us, please take a moment to leave a brief review–it helps us show up in searches and recommendations.

Episode #7 features an interview with Kristen Arnett, author of Felt In The Jaw, on debut authorship, the value of literary social media, and how she got her beloved agent. We also continue our mini-series on conferences with on-the-spot chats from speakers and participants at the Hippocamp Creative Nonfiction Conference.

Show notes and links to people, places and things we’ve discussed are below. Next episode, we’ll be talking all things submissions with JoBeth McDaniels, Geeta Kothari, Erika Dreifus, Irene Landsman and a few more Hippocampers.

  • I am having all the feels this morning. I cannot think of a better thing to wake up to. Thank you Allison and to all of the attendees and speakers for sharing your thoughts about our annual conference. I could not be more grateful for this event, the people who make it what it is, and the thoughtfulness of including HippoCamp in this podcast.

  • Joanne says:

    I enjoyed not only the conversation with Kristen Arnett but also vicariously reliving HippoCamp through your “on the ground” interviews with speakers, attendees, and volunteers.

  • herheadache says:

    I enjoy Christmas music and podcasts. I am glad this event is covered. I hope to attend, after being blessed to be published with them this year. Maybe ext year I will be there to hear all the excellent speakers in person.

    Until then, bring on both holiday tunes and this latest Brevity podcast.
