Welcome to the next installment of Writing Podcast at Writers Forum.
Another great podcast I regularly listen to for writers is The Creative Nonfiction Podcast. I found this podcast a few years ago when I was looking for podcasts on nonfiction writing that might help me with my memoir. The Creative Nonfiction Podcast, or CNF, as host Brendon O’Meara likes to call it, was one of the first hits on my search. This is a weekly podcast in which Brendon interviews a nonfiction writer each week.
I’ll be honest. When I first hit ‘play’ on the podcast, I wasn’t sure I was going to like it. Brenden seemed a bit too brash for my tastes. A little bit too hip.
However, I really wanted to hear the author he was interviewing.
I’m glad I stuck around. Brendon’s persona during the interviews is totally professional. He asks penetrating and engaging questions, and then backs out to let his guest answer the question. I’ve tried to listen to too many podcasts in which the host seems to like the sound of his/her own voice too much. CNF is not like that at all. I have never come away from a CNF episode without learning something and being encouraged in my own writing.
Brendon is passionate about helping writers find their voice. Check out his podcast. I think you’ll be glad you did.
