In each episode of the Secrets from the Green Room podcast hosts Craig Cormick and Irma Gold chat with a writer about their experience of the writing and publishing process in honest green room-style, uncovering some of the plain and simple truths, as well as some of the secrets – whether they be mundane or salubrious – and having a lot of fun in the process.
Episode 1: Anna Spargo-Ryan
Craig and Irma chat about why they’ve launched the podcast, the history of the green room and their own green room experiences. Then Anna Spargo-Ryan chats with Irma about how she grew up with her own publishing house (sort of!), the manuscripts that never made it to publication, how she accidentally pitched a book on Twitter that led to a heated auction, what said heated auction involved (hint: a lot of emotional paralysis on the couch), the worst rejection of her writing life and a whole lot more.

More listening pleasure about writing on its way
This first episode of Secrets form the Green Room promises so much listening pleasure and insight. All promises are fulfilled. The listener feels like they are having coffee with old friends talking about their experiences in a deep but also light-hearted and friendly way. Listening to Anna I felt great encouragement to return to the blank page and keep going. Insights into writing craft, life, and publishing, that resonate, are all here. I am excited for the next episode. Congratulations!
