[Writerings S01E07] Copyright

[Writerings S01E05] Warner Bros' Harry Potter f*ckup
Greg read an article and snapped his chains… now he’s out in the yard and barking non-stop. Sorry. 😛 With good reason, though. We just can’t fathom the idiocy from corporations and the abuse of fandom. We just can’t.

[Writerings S01E04] Fan-fiction
Greg’s still in the doghouse — barking a lot. 😛 We discuss fan fiction (turns out, Martyn’s a Trekkie! Who knew?) and the benefits (and dangers!) of putting work and passion into them. We also talk about why today’s the best time to be writing fan fiction, the death of originality, and a lot more. Send us your fanfic! We’d love to feature them on the show, and send new readers your way! Background music: Jazz Brunch by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com); licensed under Creative Commons: By...
[Writerings S01E03] Self-publishing
This week Martyn explains the ins and outs of self-publishing.

[Writerings S01E01] ... in which we have no idea what we're doing
We started a podcast, because we're writers and we need to procrastinate. And also talk about writing. Come meet us, and listen to our take on writing advice, difference in process, and other things.
