Welcome to the NYWC Podcast!

Compiling the first podcast, I ran into some starting difficulties similar to those I encounter when trying to get started with a writing project. So, I figured, what better way to get started with our podcast than some words of wisdom about getting started with writing?

This episode features an interview with NYWC Founder/Executive Director, Aaron Zimmerman, two original songs composed by James Power, using poems from our workshops as lyrics, and an interview with some funny writers about their unique processes and writerly functionality (or, in some cases, dysfunctionality).
