In This Episode: 

Welcome to the Business of Writing Podcast, we’re your hosts, Rachel Mazza and Laura Gale.

Both of us are writers who have been working for ourselves full-time for the better part of a decade, and it has been quite a ride.

We’ve learned so much (and are still learning) and we’ve made a lot of mistakes along the way. On this show we’ll share some of those lessons with you so you can avoid making the same mistakes while building momentum and sustainability into your writing career.

We’re honored that you’ve given us your time and attention, and we don’t take that lightly. So we’ll try and make sure everything we do here is practical and applicable — all killer, no filler.

Today we’ll chat about who we are and how we got started, and then going forward we’ve got a lot of great guests lined up who are going to share their expertise as well.

Let’s dive in!
