Creative writing is one of those hobbies that either fizzles out over time or, with enough patience and dedication, becomes a lifelong endeavour — even a career. Sarah Anderson and Ashley Lindsay, creators of the Dear Writer podcast, have wanted to be writers since they were young girls in Auckland, New Zealand. They collaborated on projects under the portmanteau Sasha A. Linderson, even as they pursued careers in nursing and chemistry. With Anderson moving to Calgary while Lindsay stayed in Auckland, the two now use Dear Writer to discuss specific aspects of creative writing and to host fellow authors and promote their books in the Author Spotlight. Whether you’re an amateur creative writer yourself, or know someone that is looking to make an impact with their own words, Dear Writer is a must-listen.

Catch Dear Writer bi-weekly on Spotify or Apple Podcasts.
