The Written Scene


Jan 23, 2024

There are many reasons Holly Kammier, author and co-founder of Acorn Publishing, enjoys books. One of them is because of that crinkly plastic wrapping they put on the covers of books at libraries. So good.

In this episode of The Written Scene, Holly discusses what makes a good manuscript, what a hybrid publisher looks like, the books she read as a kid (for better or worse), making the want vs. should career decisions, why memoirs are her favorite genre, a little love (and hate) for John Mayer, using art and writing itself to conquer imposter syndrome, the get-to-the-good-part mentality when editing, dreams of a world where readers are reading books written by writers, and much more.
