We are thrilled to announce that borrowed solace: the podcast will be coming to a listening platform near you this summer! This is something that has been, and still is, in the works over here at borrowed solace. We believe in creating a writing community and immersing ourselves in writing in any way that we can, so what better way to do that than through a podcast?
borrowed solace was founded on the idea of cultivating a moment of time out of our reader’s day-to-day lives to discover solace in writing and literature. Most of us live hectic non-writing-focused lives and try to squeeze writing in here and there as we have space to do so. We thought of starting a podcast as a way to make even more space for writing in your life. With this podcast, our hope is that you are able to dwell in ideas, conversations, and stories centered on creativity while you go through the motions of the day-to-day. This podcast will allow for moments of borrowed solace while you get ready in the morning, while you’re in the pickup line waiting for your kids to get out of school, or while you scurry about in the kitchen cooking dinner. It will allow your mind to wander to writing during moments where you might otherwise be focusing on the day’s schedule, or while you work on your non-writing career, day in and day out.
Ultimately, we want this podcast to be for you! We want you to have a role in this thing, too, because borrowed solace is all about creating a creative community. From you, dear readers, submitters, writers, dreamers, we ask for your thoughts and questions. Our goal is to come out with podcasts twice a month and to devote a few moments of each episode to answering your questions or focusing on topics that you care about while also sharing interviews with writers, artists, poets, and other editors.
To submit your thoughts to us, or let us know if you are interested in being featured on the podcast, we have added a brand new page to the journal’s website all about borrowed solace: the podcast. On it, there is information on how you can submit ideas to us. No submission is off limits, but be forewarned that we may not answer everything that comes through to us on the podcast if it is something very narrow in scope or that we really aren’t knowledgeable about enough to answer. Please also submit your stories, poems, and nonfiction works to us if you are interested in having it read, or reading it yourself, on air!
We have already planted the seeds of a wonderful writing community here amongst our readers, editors, and contributors, and can’t wait to further water the borrowed solace garden with the addition of this podcast!
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to email us. All podcast-related questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
