Ink and Impact Podcast

Hosted by Dalene Bickel

The mission of the Ink and Impact podcast is to educate, encourage, and embolden God’s writers.

Friend, our weary and wandering world is in need of writers of all ages, races, and nationalities to create quality nonfiction and fiction books that offer Biblical light, hope, and truth.

Even more than that, God is calling His writers to step out in faith and share their God-inspired stories.

If you’re a writer who

* desires to create books that counteract the worldly titles featured prominently on bookstore shelves today,

* takes their craft seriously, and

* understands that God should be glorified in all they do,

then this podcast is for you.

Ink and Impact addresses not only tips and best practices to help you improve your craft and magnify your message, but also guide you through the ENTIRE writing journey.

From overcoming fears and building your faith, to discovering fellow writers and keeping a pulse on the overall publishing industry – the goal is to help you keep God at the center of it all.

Weekly rotating content includes:

* Occasional interviews with Christian authors and industry professionals who will share their insights and experiences to help you navigate your own writing path,

* Book recommendations,

* Listener feedback opportunities (polls, surveys, & call-ins),

* Announcements about author events,

* Occasional giveaways,

* And more!

Be sure to subscribe to Ink and Impact to automatically be notified when a new episode drops, as well as to access show notes, direct links, and additional resources.

Remember: Don’t just write a book. Make an impact.
