I listened to this for the first time for the Track Changes aspect. I teach creative writing and the information is helpful to pass along to my students.
One of the best writing podcasts
Sarah is an amazing interviewer! All the interviews are a good balance of writing-related advice and general life advice. The Track Changes series is especially so well done. I’m impressed at the way she broke down the publishing process in such a comprehensive and understandable way. This podcast inspires me every time, and I can’t wait for more content.
