Show Notes:16. Matt Smethurst — Writers Listen and Asking Good Questions

Matt reads a lot of articles. As the managing editor of The Gospel Coalition, he is responsible for shepherding and publishing twenty-two pieces of content a week. Matt has a unique position to recognize not just good writing, but important emerging conversations and the challenges writers face in joining those conversations.

Matt offers great advice for authors, everything from setting realistic goals to limiting your exposure to social media. We also spent time talking about the responsibility of writers to listen. Not just to other writers but to the people in our lives: neighbors, congregants, friends, and family.

Great writers are readers but they are also listeners.
