Great podcast, keep them coming!
This is a great podcast to listen to. Really enjoyable and helpful
Great, informative, inspiring series!
I've just binge-listened to the first three eps of Writes4Women and I'm feeling entertained, informed and motivated! I especially liked Episode 2, because I was procrastiwriting my novel by listening to a podcast about how not to procrastinate. Keep up the great work, Kel and Pam!
Writers for Readers Too!
I’m not a writer but I love hearing how writers work, their inspirations, the way they plan and how they tweak their writing to engage us as readers. So if you’re a bookie person I can recommend this podcast and look forward to seeing Kel and Pams work evolve. Thanks you two clever Birds of a feather!
