Online Outlets for Writers: Podcast

I just finished up another podcast for the University Center for Writing Based Learning at DePaul.

This episode is about online outlets for writers, how they can get published online and ways that they can join the writing community. I helped interview, edit, and host this episode. We play around with more bumper music, so this episode has some nice musical breaks in it.

There are two great interviews in this episode. The first is with Randy Richardson, the president of the Chicago Writer’s Association. The second interview is with John Whitehead, the founder of the online magazine Gadfly.
