New Literary Podcast for NC

A literary podcast launches October 2 called Charlotte Readers Podcast: Where Authors Give Voice to Their Written Words. This is a show that features Charlotte-area authors and those who visit the Queen City.

Author Landis Wade, a member of the NC Writers’ Network, encourages authors to read and talk about their award-winning, published, and emerging works, which he says are the kind of stories and poems that touch the emotions, followed by the kind of questions and answers that seek depth and insight into the readings.

The show offers complete stories and poems, the kind that have a beginning, a middle, and an end, as well as book excerpts, but Landis says not to worry, because good authors tend to skip “Once upon a time” and start closer to the middle, with that “dark and stormy night.”

The mic is open to multiple genres in multiple forms, including short stories, flash fiction, essay, memoir, humor, narrative nonfiction, long fiction, and more.

Landis will have an exhibitor table for the podcast at the NCWN 2018 Fall Conference in Charlotte.
