Episode 84: Jess Lahey & KJ Dell’Antonia on how to build long-lasting writing friendships

In this episode, we talk to two of the three co-hosts of the #amwriting podcast. (We are huge fans of that podcast, in case you haven't noticed.) We talk with them about the benefits of having a friendship that is just about writing, about the incredible gift of being able to be open with close friends, and about the relief of finding someone to take writing seriously with.

KJ Dell'Antonia wrote and edited the Motherlode blog for the New York Times from 2011 until 2016 and was a contributing editor to the Well Family section from 2016-2017. She is also the author of the author of How to Be a Happier Parent and the forthcoming novel The Chicken Sisters, which will be released June 30th 2020. (KJ was a guest on Marginally in Episode 40.)

Jessica Lahey is the author of the New York Times bestselling book, The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed. Her second book, The Addiction Inoculation: Raising Healthy Kids in a Culture of Dependence, will be released in April 2021. (Jess was a guest in Episode 36 as well.)
