Worlds in Characters

Anthony L. Wolf

Games, films, books, music, feeling hungry and opening the fridge looking for a slice of your favourite cake… All of these have one thing in common: stories.

Hello everyone and welcome to my writing podcast! I’m Antonino (or Anthony, if it sounds easier) and, as you can guess, I’m not a native English speaker. I’m also a writer and editor, which means I have my own unique slice of language challenges to overcome.

Just like every human being. Follow me on this new episode of Worlds in Characters, in which I try and explain (pretty badly) the delicate mechanism of writing stories.
