About Behind the Prose

Behind the Prose is a podcast that deconstructs the work of contemporary authors, essayists, and journalists. Through in-depth interviews, the show investigates writers’ choices and motivations – from sentence structure to chapter breaks – to explore and demystify the writing process.

Begun in January 2015, the show will launch its second season in September 2016 on BlogTalkRadio, where it landed several number one rankings on the platform’s writing channel.

There’s not many of us, but there’s one more than last season!
