    When a traveler stumbles through a strange archway of stone and wood and magic, they find themselves on the threshold of an inn in the heart of an ancient forest. Inside, they find an ancient sprite who gives them a tale... the story of how the door which brought them into the Echowood was made, and the desperation and deception that built it. But as his story unfolds, it becomes clear that not all is as it seems with Grael, and a deeper mystery begins to take shape.
     
    Starring Sam Taylor as Grael, with original music by Jesse Haugen. Written and produced by Trevor Van Winkle, and made possible by our supporters on Kickstarter, Patreon.com/homesteadcorner, and ko-fi.com/homesteadcorner. Executive produced by Axel Allcock.

So well put together

I actually love this podcast, I was so surprised by how polished, well researched and well thought out this was. This was better than a creative writing Masterclass. I’m not even a writer and I loved listening to this. Listen if you want to know more about story-craft.

Homestead On The Corner

Trevor Van Winkle is madly talented ...
The 10-story anthology entwined within his storytelling lessons in season one, and season two’s “The Sheridan Tapes” (a separate podcast), are amazing from what I’ve heard (and can’t wait to get back to - !!); his writing is as enjoyable as he is talented... and the stable of actors they used is absolutely stellar. I’ll anxiously wait to see what new podcast “Homestead...” has on the horizon.

Long Live the Audio Drama

The world needs more audio dramas. Full stop. I love the variety in the stories that get produced, and as a writer/artist I love the advice and ideas in the more regular podcast episodes. A must-listen for any creative person!
