Podcasts Provide Practical on-the-go Instruction
I listen to many podcasts, between ten to fifteen hours a week, that cover writing or publishing. I listen in the car, during lunch, on walks and as I work around home. I access all through iTunes and listen on my iPod.
I select podcasts to help me become a better writer and indie-published author. With so much content to listen to, I don’t want to waste my time.
Here is a list of my current podcasts. They are in approximate order of how long I’ve listened to them.
- The Creative Penn (Joanna Penn) addresses writing from the perspective of a successful indie author.
- Novel Marketing discusses novel marketing, much of which applies to nonfiction too.

Though I don’t listen to every episode of every podcast, I do listen to most of them. And I never skip a single one of my favorites.
This list is long and, no doubt, daunting. Don’t let it overwhelm you. Pick one to check out and go from there.
