A show about writing, reading, and getting (some) things done. Jessica Lahey writes the Parent-Teacher Conference column for the New York Times' Well Family and is the author of "The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Children Can Succeed." KJ Dell'Antonia is a columnist and contributing editor for the New York Times' Well Family. In their podcast, they talk about writing short form, long form and book length, give tips for pitching editors and agents and constantly revise how they tackle the ongoing challenge of keeping your butt in the chair for long enough to get the work done.

Customer Reviews

Solid, professional and entertaining

I discovered this podcast through a referral by Gretchen Rubin. I am both a published writer and an unproductive writer (lots of projects dying on the vine), and I wanted to surround myself with the voices of people who do writing all the time (the theory of "social contagion"). I have now worked through about half of their 134 podcasts in just a few weeks, which I think is testimony to how useful I find them. I really enjoy Jess and KJ's rapport and I get super excited whenever Sarina Bowen shows up for a guest gig! This podcast is a gift to all writers and wannabe writers, and I appreciate it.

So inspiring

This is one of those podcasts that I subscribed to and put on my mental list for later. I'm finally getting down to listening and now I can't stop. I am SO inspired by this podcast! Inspired to read, to write (I got 2 book ideas since I started listening!), inspired to get the work done. Jess & KJ are completely relatable and easy to listen to. Thank you for this thoughtful, intellegent, encouraging podcast.

Generous, Helpful, and Fun

I discovered this podcast earlier this year and it quickly became one of my favorites. I have slowly been making my way through the archives, and I am amazed at the generosity, transparency, and altruism of the hosts. They share so much detailed information to help writers succeed. If God is in the details, this podcast is sacred. Thanks KJ and Jess for all you do!
