So informative

Thank you so much for your informative Q and A. I have self published a poetry collection and a narrative poem so far and I hope to publish a short story collection towards the end of the year. Your tips and advice have helped me no end. Thank you.

My favourite

I love this podcast! I’ve been listening to it, on and off, for years now, but since the lockdown etc., it has become my go-to podcast for when I go for my daily walk. Great content, with lots of advice, and inspiration. All done in such a fun way...what’s not to like!
