Safe and Supported
Thank you for such honesty and generosity. I love every episode. As an aspiring writer, I learn so much from your conversations, and the guest authors. It’s truly wonderful to listen to women’s stories and to feel a positive force within a world desperate for change. ‘Yay’ for you two! From JAMortimerwriter.
Really enjoyed listening to Vanessa about different points of view. It’s is great hearing how she went about writing her book. As an emerging writer it’s to lovely hear her journey. It inspired me with my own novel about women as never being published you never know if you should keep going.
Love listening and learning
I really treasure Writes 4 Women! The podcast makes me feel like I’m enjoying a summery afternoon with two long-loved friends, chatting about books and writing. I love it!
