thewritingcoach's podcast

Welcome to The Writing Coach. On this podcast, I speak with the instructors, editors, coaches, and mentors who help writers and authors create their art, build their audience, and sell their work.

In episode #64 of The Writing Coach podcast, I speak with Jennie Nash.

Jennie has spent 30 years in the books. She is the author of seven books, one of the world’s top one-on-one writing coaches, and the co-founder of Author Accelerator, a company that matches authors with books coaches.

During our conversation, Jennie describes:

  • Why she finds the quick fix solutions to learning writers craft so frustrating
  • What she learned from her writer father
  • The moment she turned down a multi-book deal with a traditional publisher
  • Why a writing retreat once asked her to "tone down" her intensity
  • The reason writers need to get good at asking for what they want
  • How talent can often get in the way of storytelling
  • The non-linear nature of writing
  • And much more
