Hosted by Jeff Umbro and Kyle Craner, this project began as a way for the two of them to get over their own fears of writing, and slowly morphed into an inspiring multi-year project to tell the stories others find difficult. Each episode brings a well-known creative into the studio to discuss his or her career, their newest projects, and one story they’ve always struggled to tell. Guests include Andy Weir, Lev Grossman, Stephanie Danler, The McElroys, Claire Messud, Mark Manson & Tim Urban, among dozens of others.

What People Are Saying

“Come for the writers who’re already your favorites, stay for the new favorites you discover. The art and work of writing, the intricacies of the world of publishing, and the difficulties of just keeping going are playfully and incisively teased apart by two smart hosts and the fascinating collection of authors, journalists, essayists, and editors they talk with. Highly recommended.”
– Apple Podcast user Avery Claire Edison

“Writers Who Don’t Write deals with writers during the time that they are not writing. ”
– Geek Girl Authority

“Honest conversations with writers.”
