Welcome to episode 2 of the Ottawa Writes Podcast!

Time for the second episode of the Ottawa Writes Podcast. (Happy Dance!) We’ve (Kevin Johns and Catherine Brunelle) been having a great time piecing together our interviews from the CAA Book Fest with reflections on writing. In this episode, we’ll be speaking with Mony Dojeiji and Alberto Agraso, authors of Walking for Peace. On top of the insights into writing purpose and publishing savvy in the interview, we’ll also touch upon:

– Catherine’s book launch party for The Adventures of Claire Never-Ending

– Mony and Alberto’s excellent media kit

– The need to pitch your story to the media

– Whether a fiction novel needs a specific goal or message

And of course, we always invite you to join us in the conversation. Leave your reflections on the conversation below, or hop onto your social media of choice (so long as it’s either facebook or twitter) to share your ideas. Remember to use the hashtag #OttawaWrites so that we can all find one another easily. See you on the other side of the pod cast! ~Catherine & Kevin
