What exactly is 88 Cups of Tea?
88 Cups of Tea is a podcast produced and hosted by me, Yin Chang, that features kick-ass creative souls. I connect with inspiring guests to empower the heck out of your writing aspirations.
Who are these guests you’re talking about?
TV Producers + Directors
TED Talks Speakers
We’re talking about Pulitzer Prize and Newbery Medal winners, Caldecott Medalists, prestigious film festival acceptances, presidents of literary agencies, writers-directors-producers of the hottest TV shows, and more.
If any of these questions ever crossed your mind, you just found your go-to hang out spot.
“I’m writing this story with different first-person narratives and Microsoft Word is killing me, which writing softwares do published authors use?”
“Is an MFA in writing really necessary for me to write a book?”
“What are examples of AMAZING query letters that literary agents have received?”
“I have no idea which writing workshops to check out, how do I even start looking for the ones I’ll vibe with?”
“How do I know when my manuscript is ready to submit?”
“How do I get my foot in the door if I want to direct films? How exactly does a short film help with that?”
“I wish I had a steadier income, what did the podcast guests do to survive financially while working on getting their stories out to the world?”
“How should I go about editing my manuscript before querying?”
“Is there an outlining process that I can use so there’s never an issue with writer’s block?”
What does this all mean for me?
Let’s be honest, everyone has a story to tell. So let’s do this together.
Aside from a whopping dose of inspiration, each episode digs deep into career how-to’s and step-by-step advice to encourage and motivate your way to creative success.
I know what it’s like to feel stuck and insecure about changing jobs, and even re-focusing and shifting our dreams. I know what it’s like to feel restricted and powerless with our voice. I’m right here alongside of you craving that change to move ourselves forward with our craft and making shiz happen.
I get an absolute high from picking the brains of those I admire. And I’m here to share it all with you, my fellow curious storytellers.
88 Cups of Tea is a safe space where we all learn together, to be each other’s cheerleaders, and to root for the underdogs in all of us.
