Shalamar Initiatives

Current Projects

We also aim to provide learning and resources that anyone can access. Our podcast, Storyville, addresses many parts of a writer's journey, from writing advice to what to expect when it's time to publish. We are also building a list of questions writers often ask us about the industry. And if there are any burning questions on your mind that you can't wait for us to get to, we're only an email or a tweet away.
