About the Show
Get inspired to write from some of today's best writers. Listen. Learn. And get to work!
You won't learn how to get a book deal, write a best-seller, or quit your day job. But maybe, just maybe, you'll get the nudge you need to sit at your desk, chug your coffee, and write the blog, article, or book you've been thinking on for far too long. As Christians, our aim is to write in such a way that Jesus is made much of and the Church is encouraged to follow our risen Lord.
