About Us

We ask real questions about writing, publishing, and about living the life of a writer. We avoid typical literary BS and tell people the stuff they want to know. #LITerallyPodcast

Literary Death Match

EIt's been a long time coming, but has time really passed over the last few months? Has it really? Here is our fun Literary Death Match Podcast from last year's event. Hosted by Adrian Todd Zuniga, five other writers joined us that day, including Laura Stott, Jan Bottiglieri, Jake Alvey, David Lindes, and Kara Van De Graff. It was a serious riot. And Literary Death Match will be returning this year virtually in the fall, so keep an eye out for that announcement!

Ep. 40 - Heather Sappenfield

Heather Sappenfield joined us via radio network. She bounced off satellites to join us. Well, she didn't, but I love that we got to talk to her from long distance. Remember when we had to pay to talk long distance. Heather and I don't; we're not old enough for that. We chatted about writing, about the YA business, and about imagining worlds.

Elizabeth Joy Levinson

Elizabeth Levinson, poet and friend and teacher, joined the LITerally Podcast in the first ever recording in the camper inside The Monarch Building in the heart of Ogden's Nine Rails Arts District. We talked poetry, life, and, yes, teaching. It was so lovely to hear her read and to find out that her new book of poetry will be out next year! Listen!

Leigh Camacho Rourks

ELeigh Camacho Rourks' two favorite drinks are a Whiskey Neat and Prosecco with Mango Nectar. Sound like a study in contrasts? Maybe. Her work and her new short story collection, Moon Trees and Other Orphans, is a controlled, beautiful, and powerful study in contrasts. We talk about the St. Lawrence Book Award collection on, you guessed it, the LITerally podcast where Rourks says, a great insight for writers who are pitching their work, "Every book is different to every reader (editor) every day."

Adrian Todd Zuniga, "Collision Theory"

EAdrian Todd Zuniga (Yes, that famous guy who started Literary Death Match) talked to us on the LITerally Podcast, and we laughed a lot! We talked about his book Collision Theory that came out 2018 after its own 13-year journey to publication. It's a great book that deserved a home and found one with a publisher who believed in it. If you're in the thick of things, this podcast is for you. It's honest and uplifting, and very funny.
