Bonus Episode: Chloe Caldwell Does It Her Way (The Bleeders)

Bonus Episode: Chloe Caldwell Does It Her Way (The Bleeders)

This week, we’re featuring an episode from a great new show called The Bleeders. The Bleeders is a podcast (and support group) about book writing and publishing. The podcast emphasizes “transparent conversations with authors, agents, and people in the publishing industry about how to write and sell books.” The title is a wry nod to the famous Hemingway quote: “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”


This week, we’re featuring an episode from a great new show called The Bleeders.

The Bleeders is a podcast (and support group) about book writing and publishing. The podcast emphasizes “transparent conversations with authors, agents, and people in the publishing industry about how to write and sell books.”

The title is a wry nod to the famous Hemingway quote: “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”

This episode features an interview with author Chloe Caldwell. Reminiscent of writers like Cheryl Strayed and Meghan Daum, but with a gritty, funny tone all her own, Chloe Caldwell is the author of three essay collections including Legs Get Led AstrayWomen, and I’ll Tell You in Person, along with her latest book The Red Zone: A Love Story.

In this interview, host Courtney Kocak talks with Caldwell about her rather unique path to publishing, as the pair talk about everything from cold queries to agents to small presses to trusting your vision.
