20 Minutes with Jeanne Cavelos


Jeanne Cavelos – Scientist, former editor at Dell Books, author of the Babylon 5 trilogy “The Passing of the Techno-Mages“, and founder/director of the Odyssey Writers Workshop – has pursued her passions at every stage of her life. From scientist to editor, author to teacher, with each path she has gathered intriguing insights and a deep understanding of the storyteller’s craft. We’re delighted to have her take the Big Chair and share some of those writerly jewels with us.

Joined by my good friend and podcasting colleague, Doc Coleman, we indulge in 20(ish) minutes of exploration into some of the challenges facing writers (and how to overcome them), what makes a scene an “effective” scene, and we even indulge in a little Tolkien rap (oh yeah, baby… phat tracks from Tom Bombadil!). You don’t want to miss this one, gang (and, after you hear this, you KNOW Jeanne’s Workshop episode is going to be fabulous).
