About

Writing Excuses is a weekly podcast for writers and aspiring writers. Over the years we've won a bunch of awards, we've showcased a phenomenal who's who of fantasy, science fiction, and horror authors, and we've had the privilege of being there when exciting new authors start promising new careers. We're very proud of what we've accomplished, but we are always trying to do better.

Writing Excuses was sponsored by advertisers for almost ten years, which was great, but limiting. Moving to Patreon has allowed us to promote a wider range of book-of-the-weeks and authors, and continues to help us improve our equipment and the quality of the podcast overall.

We want to be very clear that the podcast will remain free. It always has been, and it always will be. We believe very strongly that writing advice and education belong to everybody, not just the people who can pay for it. That's a big part of why we're doing this Patreon--so that the people who can kick in a few bucks a month can help keep the the show available for the people who can't. We're not doing this to get rich: the funds we raise here will go toward improving the show, upgrading our equipment, paying our guests, and covering the various other expenses that crop up as we move forward.

Whether you just want to say thank you, or you want access to some our cool rewards, this Patreon is for you. Check out our list of pledge rewards and milestones, and help make Writing Excuses even more awesome.
Goals
$2,102.32 of $3,000 per month
Writing Excuses, and the various websites and events and calendars and cruises that have become a part of it, are quickly outgrowing our ability to manage without sacrificing our writing time. A producer will help us continue to grow, while controlling that growth and making sure everything is as smooth and useful and professional as it can be.
