7. An Ear for Story

podcasts about writing

The New Yorker magazine has for decades been a legendary publisher of short fiction, and what better way to hone your ear for great writing than spending time with some New Yorker stories? In The Writer’s Voice, you’ll find new contemporary fiction read by the authors themselves and literary luminaries. Check out David Sedaris reading “Roy Spivey,” by Miranda July, Sally Rooney reading her story “Color and Light,” and Lauren Groff reading “To Sunland.” The New Yorker podcast programs also include a series on poetry published in the magazine and a fiction series featuring discussions of fiction with editor Deborah Treisman.
