Path to Print is a fiction editing podcast hosted by romance developmental and line editor Kate Marope to showcase the many paths authors take to publishing. Writing is often a solitary process riddled with self-doubt, mental flailing, and frustration when the characters won't do what you want, so Kate created a podcast with big-nibling-who's-been-through-this energy to help authors feel less alone in their journey to print.

Whether it's improving accessibility via the shorter, informative "blogisodes" or diving deep into the process and meaning with guests, Path to Print has your back!
