Show Notes:08. Mary DeMuth — Finding Your Writing Voice: Staying Hopeful
In today’s podcast, I had the privilege of speaking with Mary Demuth. If you are new to Christian writing, it won’t take you long to come across Mary’s work. She is a prolific writer with a heart to help mentor new writers.
Mary has been a missionary church planter and also hosts two podcasts. You can find all her resources at marydemuth.com.
We spent time in our conversation discussing voice. I think its one of the first challenges writers face. How do you discover your voice? How do you trust your voice? How do you learn to use it? Mary gives honest and encouraging advice about embracing who you are as a writer.
“Most writers struggle to unearth voice — not only because one’s own voice is simply too familiar, but also because to speak from your voice means confronting your world, your dreams, and your entire life raw and unsoftened by explanations.” — Thaisa Frank and Dorothy Wall
