The Writing Community Chat Show

The Writing Community Chat Show

The Writing Community Chat Show is focused on helping authors grow and develop as well as give them the spotlight to explain their story and work. We connect indie authors with those who have been doing it professionally for decades. We try to give the best insight into the careers of professionals and hopefully that can give you the perfect tip to reach your own goals. This is done with two main shows a week. Plus, we have now introduced The WCCS Panel Show! Two teams of 3 pitted against each other in a battle of whits and impressions!
