Joan Dempsey on Revising with Confidence – The Writing Coach 038

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

In episode 38 of The Writing Coach, I speak with Joan Dempsey.

Joan Dempsey, author of the forthcoming novel This Is How It Begins (She Writes Press, Oct 3, 2017), helps serious creative writers master the craft of revision through online courses and free resources.

During our conversation, Joan describes:

  • Why she embraces the title teacher
  • How she avoids the “bank vault” approach of instruction in favour of a more learning centered approach;
  • The role formal education has played in her development as an author and a teacher of writers;
  • Why she decided to focus in on revisions as her specific area of expertise;
  • Her top revision tips
  • And much more!
