Aerogramme Writers’ Studio | #FF

Getting back into writing after a long hiatus can be difficult, but I’ve found a lot of fantastic sources online that have kept me motivated and informed along the way. One of my favorites has been Aerogramme Writers’ Studio, a blog devoted to publishing news and resources for emerging and established writers.

In addition to tips and advice, Aerogramme also highlights opportunities for writers such as grants, scholarships, contests, or submissions requests from literary publications. They provide a steady stream of writing inspiration by curating some of the best interviews with famous authors from around the web. They’re never elitist or snooty, just useful information on the regular, make sure to check them out!

Until next time, happy writing!






The Nerdist Writers Panel | #FF

HAPPY FRIDAY! If you’re anything like me, then you probably plan on doing some writing this weekend. If you’re in the market for some inspiration, I highly recommend checking out the Nerdist Writer’s Panel podcast, moderated by Ben Blacker. Guests are generally TV & Film writers, but they’ll have on the occasional novelist as well. The format is casual, and Ben asks some great probing questions about their process and advice for thriving in the business. It’s a great listen if you’re in the mood for some motivation and funny anecdotes from some the biggest writers in town.

The episode below is one of my recent favorites featuring John Green, author of some of the most popular YA novels like The Fault in Our Stars, and Paper Towns. He talks a little bit about how he got his writing career started (writing book reviews for a small publisher) and how he’s evolved throughout his career. If you’ve never heard John Green speak, this will be a real treat for you: he’s super intelligent, well-spoken, and geeky, which makes him relatable and fun to listen to. Check it out, and make sure to follow these guys for more writing insights!
