Welcome to your creative writing class

The problem with thinking that writing is hard is that it keeps you from actually writing. Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor, the creators and writers of Welcome To Night Vale, pick a subject, dissect it, then give you two assignments: consume something and create something. The create assignment is a prompt, which gives you a starting point to create an idea. I always thought that writing involved complicated plotting and outlining. Now I just write what comes into my head, and it's so much more fun.

Beautiful

There is something so refreshing and inspiring in the way these two talk about art and writing. You can tell they care a lot about what they create and that’s why their advice holds so much weight!

This podcast will grow any artist!

Such an incredible show. As a writer, it has grown me so much. Each episode teaches me so many lessons and gives me so much clarity on vital topics. I love that the focus is not on growing a following or “making it” fame wise, but on growing on our craft. This is the first podcast on the topic of writing that I’ve listened to that really teaches and resonates with me. These hosts LOVE their craft and deeply want others to grow. Can’t get enough!
