Tony Whedon, the author of Sundog Poetry Center’s latest publication (with Green Writers Press), The Hatcheck Girl, was the guest on the Write The Book podcast this week.
Joining host Shelagh Connor Shapiro, Tony explores two writing prompts:
- Either imagine an attic or remember one from your past, and describe the things you see there.
- Find a piece of music that you don’t know that well and explore it with words as you listen.
Listen to the podcast below.
Write the Book is a Burlington, VT radio show about writing for writers and curious readers. The podcast features interviews with authors, poets, agents, editors, and illustrators.
