This project began back in 2016, right after I finished my dissertation. It stalled a bit as I began my postdoc at the University of West Florida, but I am happy to announce that I recently launched the Writing at Work Podcast, which features interviews with professionals about the writing they do at work.
My goal with this podcast is simple: to provide writing teachers and students “a peek behind the professional writing curtain.” I want students to hear first-hand, from working professionals, what the work of writing is like. I want them to hear about the documents we don’t get to teach them in the limited time they spend in our classes. And I want them to hear about how even the documents we do teach them can vary from profession to profession.
So far, there are only four episodes out, but I have four more interviews scheduled and other guests waiting in the wings. I can’t wait to share these conversations with teachers and students! Plus, I get to talk to people about their writing–one of my favorite parts about studying writing.
