Welcome to Radio FreeWrite

A podcast for lovers of stories- reading them, hearing them, and writing them. We provide a new prompt every week, then share the stories we have created from that prompt. We discuss the stories and the art of storytelling while encouraging listeners to create along with us.

Tune In

New episodes premier every Friday and feature a writing prompt designed to get you putting #inktopaper

Write Along

Pause the podcast after the prompt is given.  Give yourself an hour or two to create a raw draft based on whatever the prompt inspires in your mind, even if it is only tenuously linked to the prompt itself.

Share Aloud

First, listen to the rest of the podcast, where we read our stories and discuss them with each other.  Then, gather with your own group of writers (we're everywhere; chances are you have several friends who enjoy writing, even if they don't actively pursue it), read your raw drafts to each other, and discuss each in turn.

Take Charge

Decide what your next steps are for your raw draft.  Are you going to polish it for publication?  Burn it- yes, with real fire- so you never have to think about it again?  Something else entirely?  The choice is yours- the world is your burrito.

FEATURED EPISODES

Tune in every week for a new writing challenge and to hear our results from said challenge.  We think the banter is pretty good, too.

FEATURED STORY - Krispy

FEATURED STORY - WebEater

SHOW NOTES

Caurus

The Cru have an in-depth discussion on creating empathy for characters who do awful things, like fathers who abandon their children.  Krispy adds some levity with an anthropomorphized Wind, equal parts trickster and temper-tantrumy toddler.   And, to make it a true grab-bag type episode, there are farts.
