PODCAST SERIES This Bus Doesn’t Stop at Your Door (Notes on Writing)

This Bus Doesn’t Stop at Your Door is our first podcast series on writing. We call it a “non-course” on writing where we highlight important notes on writing given by successful writers over the years on various writing topics that we think writers of all kinds need to know. This is a five-part series of roughly fifteen or twenty minutes “PunchCasts” where we identify short essays about writing by well-respected authors such as George Orwell and Flannery O’Connor, then highlight important concepts and techniques presented so that our listeners can continue studying these brief essays and implementing lessons learned.

Our first podcast in this five-part series quickly highlights George Orwell’s suggestions and techniques outlined in his short essay “Politics and the English Language” for improving your writing by understanding what style is, how to improve it, and how to think and write more clearly.

Now available on our homepage and at Anchor.fm.

Transcripts/article versions of all podcasts including supplementary material will be available at the end of the week to all subscribers to The PunchRiot Magazine (http://patreon.com/punchriot).
