The Odyssey Writing Workshops Charitable Trust is a nonprofit with the mission of helping writers of fantasy, science fiction, and horror improve their work. To fulfill our mission, we offer Your Personal Odyssey Writing Workshop, an intensive, one-on-one online program, customized for each student. Top authors, editors, and agents serve as guest lecturers and guest critiquers. We also offer five-week online writing classes each winter; webinars, critiques, consultations, and coaching year-round, and many free resources. These podcasts are excerpts from guest lectures at our workshop and from our online classes. For more information on Odyssey, visit odysseyworkshop.org.

These short, topic-focused recordings are helpful and to the point, making them perfect for a short commute or just for learning something quickly without trudging through an hour-long cast. I appreciate the interviews with a wide variety of writers.
Love the podcast, but audio is needs improvement.
Love this podcast! The episodes are short so it’s super easy to devour tons of them. The information is great; it tends to be things I haven’t heard before, which is awesome. The majority of the episodes I’ve listened to have really useful information, which is great because I feel like a lot of other podcasts are hit-or-miss when it comes to their content. Love this podcast!
