Tune in with Dr. Georgianna Miller, epic-teacher-of-creative-writing-and-rhetoric turned PR-firm-editor-and-reader-extraordinaire to find out how YOU can read more and give the best book gifts.

EPISODE RECAP


In Writing Community News¸ we talked about the do's and don'ts of pitching your manuscript on Twitter and remind you not to miss #PitMad if you've got an unpublished, polished manuscript you're ready to pitch to agents.


Our guest this episode was Dr. Georgie Miller, who helped us understand how she managed to read more than 200 books since January, 1 2017 and how you can, too. We talked about setting realistic goals, building a reachable reading list, the freedom to change the list all year, and how to figure out - before you read - which books will keep you reading and which ones you should probably pass on.


Georgie stayed with us for our segment about giving books as gifts and getting it right. From the person you've just met to your ex's mom, Georgie has a book recommendation for any recipient.


We hope you enjoy this episode, and let us know if there’s anything you want to hear about later this season!


Until then...
