Almost as good as a critique partner

I’m a new listener and consider this podcast a serendipitous discovery. Using submitted works as teaching tools feels like I’m sitting in a classroom. The few episodes I’ve heard helped me tweak my manuscript with confidence. You’ve earned a new fan.

Started great

I am a new listener but have gone through all of the available episodes and have to say that in my opinion this podcast was wonderful in the earlier episodes when it was more like a conversation between two people about the subject instead of a sermon being preached by one person.

Excellent Resource

Listening to the editor suggestions after the read through is incredibly useful. It gives the listeners practice in identifying problems by noting if their own edits do or do not match the hosts critiques.
