Episode 403:

Gwendolyn Kiste, writer, editor, and all around talented lady rides up to the 9th Story to talk about writing, getting published and much more!

Dan and Jeanette open the show with a short discussion about how today’s interview helped inspire Jeanette to pull off the road to write. They share stories about drinking Gin, jerk chicken, and foil line pockets. Then, it’s into Dan’s interview with Gwendolyn. A lot of ground is covered including: what Gwendolyn is working on (which includes a novel), the reason she loves the short form, hating typos and ways to avoid them, where to start your story, working with her illustrator husband, her favorite stories, the submission tools she uses, and her advice on getting published.

Tune in for a great conversation all writers and lovers of story will find entertaining and informative.
