Write With Courage!

In less time than your commute takes we bring you a dose of danger from today's exciting writers including Scott Adams, Peter Hitchens and Nick Cohen. “An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all.” Oscar Wilde. Your host Thor, mines for stories of previous failures, useable writing tips, and discovers how they got published to begin with! We bring the sort of Libertarian conversation, which happens when you are willing to listen and debate with writers of all political or religious persuasions and none. Might you be a writer with courage?

"When I sit down to write, I want more than anything to entertain the reader, and to provoke a response."

"Want to be a writer? Don't give up your day job, because you're probably not J.K. Rowling!"

'Not everything is shit..." "...the EU and Brexit was our battle of Salamis, and free men fight better than serfs!"

Stephen Fry said, “Michael Coren’s Epiphany is a wonderfully revealing read – an epiphany in itself. I urge anyone interested in the conjunction of faith and free-thought to read this engrossing and fascinating book.”

While a conservative Roman Catholic blog, in gentle contrast said, 'Michael Coren Complicit in Destruction of Souls Who Practice Homosexuality, Pt 1'

Michael is the (Random House published) best-selling author of fourteen books, including biographies of G.K. Chesterton, H.G. Wells, Arthur Conan Doyle, J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis.

Check out Michael's latest book 'Epiphany: A Christian's Change of Heart & Mind over Same-Sex Marriage'

Hear Thor Holt www.thorholt.com/writer-podcast/  in conversation with writer and journalist Peter Hitchens. Peter is not afraid to write his truth even if that means some sharp edges. Topics included quotes and advice for writers, drugs, porridge, and Peter's run in with Moscow Police while living in Russia! 

Peter Hitchens won the Orwell Prize for political journalism in 2010. One of the Orwell Prize judges, Peter Kellner, described Hitchens's writing as being "as firm, polished and potentially lethal as a Guardsman's boot." Both Peter and his Brother Christopher certainly had the capacity to grow into compelling writers and communicators. 

Say hello to Peter on Twitter @clarkemicah (yes, that really is his twitter handle) and make sure to tell him Write With Courage sent you!
