Customer Reviews

Love it!

I'm a teacher, a librarian, and a writer. I learned about this podcast because I'm a member of NCTE. Thank goodness....I love to hear writers talk about why they write! And I love to learn about processes, habits, advice, and to always hear about writing that inspires. Keep making these!

Makes me wanna write

Found this inspiring. Thank you for doing it! Keep it up.

Spot On!

I am a graduate student in the professional and technical writing program at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, and I was just thinking how nice it would be to have a podcast about writing. After listening to this podcast's first episode, I knew I had struck gold. As a sidenote, I am visually impaired, and I would love to hear episodes about riders with disabilities. I will definitely be sharing this podcast. Well done!
