The Written Scene

Apr 2, 2024

When it comes to having a fun name for every trick of the writing trade, Marni Freedman, an author, writing coach, and the co-founder of the San Diego Writer's Festival, has you covered.

In this episode of The Written Scene, Marni discusses bridging gaps in the San Diego writing community, how creativity is a life-giving force we can all tap into, opening doors to share power dynamics, being a monkey throwing spaghetti (aka: a writer), wishing she could live just one more day in film school, what writers groups need and when to know you're in a good one, learning storytelling and writing outside of school and other writing atmospheres, choosing to move on instead of saying something's done, what Elizabeth Gilbert said that pissed her off, and much more.

If you're listening to this before April 6th, 2024, be sure to check out San Diego Writers Festival from 9am to 6pm on Coronado Island. It's free and full of vendors and amazing talks you heard about in this episode. If you're listening to this after April 6th, 2024, now you have no reason to miss next year's festival.
