Podcast: Author Ginger Churchill on self-critiquing

Writingsnippets welcomes Ginger Churchill, picture book author and teacher of an online reading course called Writing in Depth with Caleb Warnock, for her second interview. This time she talks about critiquing yourself — how to see the flaws in your own writing and view your writing with new eyes so you can improve it. Some suggestions she makes include: reading your story out loud, having lots of other people read it, and critiquing other people’s writing. As always, comment on either of our interviews with Ginger for a chance to win a signed copy of one of her books! (Winner will be announced Wednesday after Christmas.)
