Welcome back for Episode 77 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans. In this special episode we take a look at the potential benefits and pitfalls of writing workshops with two veteran workshop goers, authors Cat Rambo and Luc Reid, discussing how workshops function at their best, when an author is ready to attend a workshop, and how that author can get the most out of the experience. We also chat a bit about related subjects, like Luc’s brainchild Codex, and how community building for authors is an important step in building successful careers. If you enjoy the discussion as much as we did, make sure to check out more of Luc and Cat’s work–and don’t forget to check back for our next episode, which will be recorded live at the Origins convention in Columbus this coming week! (And if you happen to be in the Columbus area, please stop by and say hello.) Until then, thanks as always for listening, and please continue to spread the word!
