WPC-077 - Writing to Market with Chris Fox

Some people just know instinctively what they want to write, but even with that question settled they may still struggle with the best way to reach and build their audience and their revenue stream. Author Christ Fox dealt with these issues as well, and even though he knew exactly what he wanted to write, he quickly discovered that even readers in his genre might not want to read his work. So he became more targeted, and soon learned to write for the market. He shares some of that insight in this interview.

WPC-32 - Conceptual Podcasting with the Art Guys

WPC-32 - Conceptual Podcasting with the Art Guys

Michael Galbreth and Jack Massing aren’t artists. At least, they don’t quite seem themselves that way. They call themselves artists, and the work they do “art,” mostly because there aren’t many words that fit better. Conceptual marketing? Performance social experimentation? For the most part, these two—the Art Guys—are in the business of pushing buttons in culture to see what happens, and how they can effect it. In this interview (the most edited interview ever for the Wordslinger Podcast), Kevin talks to the Art Guys to figure out what makes them do all those things they do.
