#30 Talking about the habit of writing with Joanna Nadin
Jo is a multitasker. She has written for prime ministers and celebrities, published her own novels for children and adults, and teaches creative writing, first at Bath Spa and now at the Universtiy of Bristol, where she’s a senior lecturer. One of the things I wanted to talk about was the thorny old question of whether writing can be taught, and if so, what can students can reasonably expect to learn.
