200: DIY MFA Radio’s 200th Episode Extravaganza — Featuring Marielle Orff and Gabriela Pereira
Hey there word nerds!
OMG DIY MFA Radio is 200 episodes old!
Whether you’ve been with me since the beginning of this journey or are just tuning in now, thank you for listening.
Since this is our 200th episode, we’re doing things a little bit differently. Instead of being the interviewer, my producer Marielle Orff takes over the show and puts me in the hot seat.
In case some of you don’t know her yet, Marielle is the content strategist at DIY MFA. As such she as her fingers in pretty much every piece of content that gets sent out by us. She edits the podcast and helps curate the lineup, manages the articles that go up on the website, and helps curate the newsletter and our social media. As such it seemed only natural to have her interview me for your 200th episode extravaganza!
Listen in as Marielle and I geek out about podcasts, platform building, and give you an inside look at what’s coming up in DIY MFA.
In this episode Marielle and I discuss:
- Getting from no to yes with publishers, agents, and podcasts.
- Pitching faux pas, and how to avoid them.
- Sustaining a huge project for the long haul.
- Putting yourself out there while still finding your voice.
- An inside look at the wish list of DIY MFA Radio!
Plus, both of our #1 tips for writers.
