Writing Tips and Writerly Musings

with Morgan Hazelwood

About the show

Welcome!

If you want to hear writing tips from the big names, the medium names, and everyone else, look no further.

As a blogger, vlogger, and unpublished fantasy author, I am addicted to attending all the writing panels a person could possibly attend at a convention. We're talking attending upwards of 25 hours of panels in 3 days.

Thanks for listening.
