Welcome to Writing Roots

A 10-minute podcast to help you improve your writing skills

Sometimes there is too much about a writing topic to cover in a single episode. Sometimes we have more that we want to share. This is where we go to write our thoughts and share lessons we’ve learned on our writing and editing journeys.

Writing Roots was created by an author and her editor as a way to share their knowledge about writing. Our focus is on new authors, but what we share is applicable to every level of writing. It can be a good reminder to get back to the roots.

Do you like our motto: write selfishly? Do you want to help support the podcast and find an easy way to share it? Check out our store! We have several items with stylish designs, including our motto and branding to help remind you why you write.


Write selfishly.

The motto of Writing Roots defines our goal. Authors should focus first on their story. Every episode is designed to help writers let go of their worries and simply write.
