For all writers

This is a podcast for all writers. As an academic and aspiring fiction writer, I’m glad I didn’t let their primary topic (nonfiction parenting) dissuade me from listening because this is the place where I’ve gotten the best writing tips. The hosts are generous and funny and I love their dynamic. The best podcast for writers!

Fantastic topics, interesting people, fun hosts

KJ and Jessica exude excitement and encouragement with every episode; I love the authenticity from them and their guests. This energetic, conversational podcast is informative fun for writers. We know we’re not alone!

Always worthwhile

This is in my top 3 podcasts that I listen to weekly. Ditto the other reviewer, “I feel like it’s made for me,” it resonates so much. Love the #amreading segment, but really like it all👍
