Workshop Episode 105 (Guest Host: Marie Brennan)


Literary alchemist Marie Brennan – author of “A Natural History of Dragons: A Memoir by Lady Trent“, The Onyx Court Series, and “Lies and Prophecy“, and so much more – returns to the Guest Host chair to lend her astonishing brainstorming savvy to a tale of two strangers who’s lives become entangled by a drug that imparts magical powers as a side effect.

The tale is offered up by a pair of creagous Guest Writers, Saskia den Ouden and Thomas de Man… a street level slice of life where the protagonists walk the very fine line between hero and villain. Joined once again by the fabulous Marie Bilodeau as co-host, we indulge in a bit of worldbuilding (what a shock), as well as delving into what makes for a truly effective antagonist. The Literary Gold flows like Spice (NOT of the pumpkin variety) and your share is just a click of the “PLAY” button away! (and definitely go back and check out Marie’s astonishingly awesome 20 Minutes With… episode!)
