A Writing + Publishing Podcast

In these usually-bite-sized episodes, we explore the nuances of writing and publishing from the perspective of authors, agents, editors, and those who haven’t quite yet broken in—because at the end of the day, the art of storytelling will save us (or obliterate our sanity into dust … it’s a coin flip).

Hosted by Pipeline Artists’ Ciara Duggan, Jeanne Veillette Bowerman, and Matthew J. Misetich.

Currently a Senior Executive and Partner at Pipeline Media Group, Matthew J. Misetich oversees all divisions, including Script, Book, and Film, as well as the management of Pipeline Artists and the implementation of future Pipeline entities. He began his tenure with Pipeline in 2006, working as a reader until early 2008 when he took over as manager. In that time, he’s helped launch the careers of several Pipeline writers, including Evan Daugherty (Snow White and the Huntsman), Tripper Clancy (Stuber), Crosby Selander (Bring Me Back), and others who have turned to Pipeline for guidance in their creative aspirations. It’s estimated he’s reviewed over 30,000 pitches, screenplays, pilots, books, and short films over the last two decades. Which he believes has to be a meaningless record of some sort.

He’s based in Los Angeles, writes fiction sometimes, and is a partner in the independent publisher Fringe Press.
