This week, we're delighted to have Emily Midorikawa back with us to discuss her new book, Out of the Shadows: Six Visionary Victorian Women in Search of a Public Voice, out now in both North America and the U.K, as well as her research process, the gift of libraries and librarians, parenthood, writing partners, and how she's worked during the pandemic.

She teaches on the writing programme at New York University London. Emily is also the coauthor of A Secret Sisterhood: The Literary Friendships of Jane Austen, Charlotte Brontё, George Eliot, and Virginia Woolf, written with Emma Claire Sweeney, and published in 2017.

Episode 98: Judith Warner on middle-grade, and on handling perfectionism in writing

When we booked author Judith Warner on the show, we had a lot of questions for her about what writers (especially kid, YA and middle-grade fiction writers) need to know about middle-school friendship, and how that period affects the rest of our lives and our friendships. Judith's new book, And Then They Stopped Talking to Me: Making Sense of Middle School, touches on the important role that this middle-grade period has in all our lives and our friendships.

Judith talks brilliantly and clearly on that topic, but we go so much wider and deeper in this interview. She talks about how she manages her perfectionism, and when it spirals into a form of OCD. It's a struggle a lot of writers deal with, and we appreciated having this open discussion.

If you've struggled with any of these things we discuss, please do get in touch with us - either through our website, on our Instagram or elsewhere.
