A Story Of Sorts

62 EpisodesProduced by Carina PereiraWebsite

Portuguese living in The Netherlands. Reading books. Selling books. Writing about books for Book Riot since 2017, and now talking about books on a podcast so that my friends can have a break for once.


A Story Of Sorts S2 E06 The Writer's Guide (To The Galaxy) with Silvana Sodde

On this episode I chat with Silvana Sodde, CEO of The Writer's Guide (To The Galaxy). Silvana talks about her work managing writing groups and workshops in Rotterdam, about gentrification, and how the Writer's Guide (To The Galaxy) started from a wish to combine writing with wine.

Trigger warning: mentions of Harry Potter, Roahl Dahl, and rape from 1h05m to 1h12m.
