Peter Newman – author of “The Vagrant” (releasing in the US in just a couple days!), co-writer for the “Tea and Jeopardy” podcast, and performer in that same delightful podcast – has entered the arena of published author-dom with distinction, poise, and a +5 Vorpal Sword. His journey to the shelves of your favorite bookstore (digital or otherwise) has been fueled not only by determination and fierce commitment to his craft, but an inspiring delight and love of telling stories.
Joined by Michelle Graham and Emily Singer (of the Beyond the Trope podcast) as my co-hosts, we engage in a remarkable 20(ish) minutes of writerly discourse with Peter, exploring the influence of gaming on his fiction, the nuances of his editorial process, the power of present-tense writing, firewalking (seriously), and more. The writerly goodness is as thick as cherry blossoms in Spring… come gather some for yourself (and if you’re wondering if Peter’s Workshop Episode is as fabulous as this episode, I’ll give you hint: Hell yes!).
