As someone who has learned enormously from Emma through her Just Write For Kids course as well as her editing, a charter member of the Children’s Book Hub, and co-admin with Emma of the Children’s Book Hub Facebook Group, I’m delighted that you’ve interviewed her.
In an amazing coincidence you’ve posted your podcast the week I’m featuring posts about Emma and her work on my blog! I have added a link to your podcast on my post about Emma today.
She is a gem.

Oops — had no idea my link back in my Wednesday Worthy would show up here! Feel free to remove that, Katie!

I think Mango needs his own spot on this blog!
HUGE congrats on getting a sponsor, Katie, and loved hearing the live Trailer Award announcement. 🙂
I have also done JWFK and am a Hub member, so it was fun having Emma as interviewee for a change. I continue to learn much from her!

Woof Mango! Sending you a cyber-begging strip for your cameo appearance!
Congrats on the sponsorship and the award!

I to have done the JWFK online course and found it valuable. I am also one of the original Hub members and love all the teleseminars she gives us, so this will be fun!

Just wanted to add…. I borrowed a laptop just so I could listen to this podcast as mine was stolen. I loved hearing Emma discuss her many “hats” that she wears, she is a true ambassador for the teaching of writing for children. Thankyou Katie, I just couldn’t miss it.

You have no idea how awesome that is to read!

Finally was able to finish the podcast. I had to listen to it in four increments! Kept getting interrupted! Arghhhh! Another valuable show. Thank you.
Congrats on getting Highlights as a sponsor! I have heard nothing but great things from writers in my group about their conferences.
