Writers collide! Inspiration ensues! It’s Writer Collider!

“Where do writers get their ideas?”

Readers: don’t you hate when you ask that question and get an evasive answer, or one that’s pithy but meaningless, or a sarcastic remark, or something so disjointed and rambling that you might as well not have asked?

Writers: don’t you hate when people ask that question and expect a simple answer?

Writer Collider is a new podcast that takes that question and applies the golden rule of writing: show, don’t tell. Instead of asking writers where they get their ideas, Writer Collider records different writers’ responses to simple story prompts submitted by listeners – illuminating the path from inspiration to story outline.

Series One of Writer Collider begins this Wednesday, 16 January 2013. New episodes will appear every two weeks.

This pilot series features as guests: playwright and screenwriter Katie McCullough (I Still Get Excited When I See A Ladybird); (graphic) novelist Chris Buxey (Surreal Science); novelist and poet Lucy Hounsom (Starborn); and novelist/playwright Richard Stratton (Gormenghast: Titus Groan).

Download episodes as they become available, or subscribe to Writer Collider using your podcatcher of choice.

And if you enjoy the show, please tell a friend, (micro)blog about it, and/or leave a review on iTunes.
