Hello Podwalkers, and welcome back to the Goblin Lore Podcast! Today on the cast Alex sits down with returning guest Reinhardt Suarez to talk about two pieces of Magic fiction that Reinhardt wrote. Reinhardt was on the show back in episode 78 to discuss what Science Fiction in the Multiverse has looked like to date, and potential future directions. Since that time Reinhardt has worked with Wizards on pieces specifically for Strixhaven!! Discussion today looks at his experiences working with Wizards while writing those two pieces, and about writing in general. As usual the goblins meander through a number of topics, including the value of editors, dealing with imposter syndrome as a writer (or creative in general) and some differences between self publishing and traditional publishing. It’s a heavy craft-centric episode, we hope you enjoy it!
