Dear City Letters Still Wanted for Upcoming Podcast

2010-09-07

Back in July, we worked with a producer of National Public Radio's show State of the Re:Union to drum up support for their "Dear City" letters segment to help them find material for their upcoming show based in West Virginia. We thought it would be fun to do something similar for our podcast and, with their consent, are going to do so. The Dear City Letters are basically what they sound like: people writing a letter TO their city. These can be written from a place of love, anger, humor and beyond, addressing the likes and dislikes or breaking misconceptions. As part of our collaboration, the WV Writers Podcast opened its voicemail hotline to listeners to phone in such letters. We forwarded those we received to State of the Re:Union and are planning to also use them for an upcoming podcast. If you would like to participate with your own Dear City letter, please do so, for there is still time. Here are your instructions: * People can feel free to be as creative as they'd like... the only constraint is to keep it under 400 words. * All the letters should start the same way with "Dear _____ [your town name here],” i.e. if you live in Parkersburg, you should start “Dear Parkersburg.” * Also, remember to refer to your home in the second person (You). We want these to sound like you're speaking directly to your home. * Once your letter is written, phone up the WV Writers Podcast voicemail hotline so we can record it. The number is 304-661-9745. * When you call, you will have 2:45 sec to record your dear city letter. If your letter runs longer, feel free to call back and record the rest. * If you mess up, just say 3…2… 1 and start where you left off; we can edit out the errors.…

Episode 34 - Pitching to Agents 101 with Christine Witthohn

2010-06-08 :: efritzius@gmail.com
Length: 23s



This week we present our much heralded interview with Christine Witthohn from Bookcents Literary Agency in Charleston. Christine is a guest at this coming weekend’s 2010 WV Writers Summer Conference. There, she'll be joining fellow agent Kelly Mortimer and Sourcebooks, Inc, editorial manager Peter Lynch to take pitches from conference attendees for potential representation or publication.

To prep our attendees for the sessions, Christine and one of her clients, writer S.G. Redling, will be leading a workshop on Saturday morning on how to pitch to agents and editors. However, I thought it would be good to get a podcast preview of that information here so that our listeners who want to pitch can go into the conference with a heads up on the process. Christine also explains what kind of material she is looking for at Book Cents.

New Blog Address

2010-03-10

Since the beginning of this podcast, nigh on a year back, we’ve repeatedly given out our web address so that you can find us online. Thanks to some technobabble-worthy issues behind the scenes, though, our address has had to change.

While the old address will still get you here (at least after 30 seconds, when it forcibly bounces you), the new address for the show is now and will hopefully forever more be Podcast.WVWriters.org. Similarly, address for the West Virginia Writers blog has also changed and is now Blog.WVWriters.org.

We're not complaining, as this is a simpler address to remember than our old one and the move has allowed us to do lots of modification on the site that would otherwise have been more difficult to do. Expect some visual changes and new features (not to mention a sidebar that gets updated more often) on both the podcast page and the blog.

All of the old posts of both the blog and the podcast are now in place at the new addresses and feed service will soon resume. So if you have us bookmarked anywhere, please change to the new addresses.…

WV Writers Podcast: Ep 24 - Keith Pitzer Tribute with Pops Walker

2010-01-14 :: efritzius@gmail.com
Length: 45s

"It’s with a heavy heart that I write to you today, for we have lost a great friend and performer, Keith Pitzer. Keith passed on this morning after a courageous fight with cancer. His wife Joan, and his four grown sons mourn the loss of their loved one, as do I, Bobbi, and anyone who knew Keith." -- Pops Walker

This is the opening paragraph from a letter written by Keith's friend and our podcast composer, Pops Walker. Written on December 22, the day Keith passed, it is how many of us first learned the news. Keith was not only a friend of this podcast, but he was a friend of our organization as well.

I thought for today’s special double-sized podcast it would be nice to speak with Pops in tribute to Keith. I wanted to get Pops' perspective on Keith the man and hear about his tireless work with Friends of the Cheat, and also hear of his skill as a musician. We'll also hear some of the outtakes from my interview with him last June, including some of the amazing music he made alongside his wife Joan.
