A great podcast for writers
There's no doubt about it, Mark knows what he's talking about. His years of experience alone back this up, but I enjoy listening to the Stark Reflections podcast because his interviews (and non-interview episodes) always make me reflect on my own writing or life in general. Keep up the fantastic work!
Writing? Listen to this.
Mark’s podcast is my new favourite. He’s positive, knowledgeable, funny, and friendly. Add to that a desire to continue to learn (and share) about the publishing industry, and you have the perfect podcast for writers. Highly recommend!
My Morning Inspiration Podcast
I love listening to this podcast because Mark helps to inspire and give you food for thought. After listening I am revved up to create!
(I gave four stars because there should always be room to grow, get better and to keep up the good work!)
