About Write Away Podcast

Crys: All I want in life is a comfy bed, the ability to eat all the chocolate in sight without affecting my health, and a bunch of writer friends to geek out about writing with.

Two outta three isn’t so bad, right?

I started Write Away because I love listening to podcasts. I love listening to podcasts about writing and business. I love talking about writing and business. When I started, it was just me, sitting in a room, talking to myself (or occasionally an interviewee). And that wasn’t working for me.

Scheduling interviews took too much social energy for my little introvert soul, and talking to myself was exhausting in a whole different way. I can’t hold both sides of a conversation unless it’s words on the page.

Since my goal in starting the podcast was to geek out about writing and business with people, I knew I had to bring someone on to talk back at me. To throw ideas at me. And hot damn did I luck out when JP said “Yes!”

We both believe that pursuing creative goals can free us on emotional, spiritual, and financial levels, and we want to help other writers claim that freedom and the joy that comes with it.

Collaborating with JP brought Write Away from the first draft mush that is a necessary step to any project to the wham-bam excitement I imagined when Write Away was just a tiny star seed in my brain. Not only do we talk about craft and getting started publishing, but also diversity, LGBTQ+ issues, neurodivergency, and witchyness. All things that matter deeply to us in our writing, and hopefully you as well!

It’s an energy that fuels me week after week, encouraging me to dive deeper into my writing and business and the joy they give me.

And that energy has brought you here, as well! Which is really what Write Away is about. To lure other potential writer friends into our little pond with cookies and caffeine to talk about craft and business and publishing for hours upon hours.

So, if we’re already talking about all this stuff, why do we have a Patreon? Well, hosting a podcast costs money. Transcriptions (which we feel insanely passionate about for accessibility) also cost money. And all the administrative froo-la-la of publishing the podcast takes time. Time away from our own writing.

One of our dearest goals is to host a Write Away Writing Retreat: a time and space that will be dedicated to being creative and building friendships and collaborations with other writers away from the day-to-day cares of our lives.

If you support us, you’re directly contributing to our ability to publish these conversations and helping create a community space where all of us can share knowledge and experiences. You’re supporting us in creating things that we hope will support you in pursuing your free and creative life.
