MOST LISTENS AWARD
Congratulations to Silvia Acevedo, the winner of 2019’s award for the Most Listens.
When adjusted for days available, Silvia’s episode about writing a series was the most listened to episode from 2019.
Silvia has won a one-of-a-kind, commemorative Writescast Network mug!
Congratulations once again to Silvia. If you haven’t yet, you can tune in to her episode below.
LISTENERS’ CHOICE AWARD
Congratulations to Brenda Marie Smith, whose episode about drama, characterization, and throughlines won this year’s Listeners’ Choice Award!
This year, a record-obliterating 1,382 votes were cast across every eligible episode, but Brenda’s came out on top. Our voters’ enthusiasm speaks volumes about how passionate they are about supporting their favorite authors and episodes. Thanks to all of you who voted.
Brenda, too, has won a one-of-a-kind, commemorative mug!
Congratulations again to Brenda for having won this year’s Listeners’ Choice Award. Her award-winning episode can be found below.
PATRONS’ CHOICE AWARD
We’d like to congratulate author Gregory Lee Renz for his win in this year’s Patrons’ Choice Award!
Greg’s episode about writing from experience was our patrons’ favorite from 2019, and once you’ve tuned in, you’ll understand why.
Like Silvia and Brenda, Greg has also won a one-of-a-kind, commemorative mug.
Congratulations once more to Greg. His full episode can be streamed below.
FOUNDER’S CHOICE AWARD
Congratulations to Ann Garvin, the winner of the third annual Founder’s Choice Award! Ann’s episode about mission statements, knowing the market, and three-legged pants inspired me to view my approach to all things writerly through a new lens, and I’m so grateful she could share that insight with our listeners, too.
Ann has also won a one-of-a-kind, commemorative mug that mentions her episode and organization, the Tall Poppy Writers.
And if you haven’t yet listened to Ann’s episode, you can do so below. I can’t recommend it enough.
To our listeners, to our guests, to those who voted in our polls and to those who have reached out about getting their own version of the winners’ mugs, thank you. The Writescast Network wouldn’t be the same without you.
We’d also like to thank our sponsors and patrons, whose financial support of our programming makes it possible to, among other things, award mugs to this year’s winners.
Congratulations again to our winners. Write on and write well.
