On today’s episode the flexible and observant Loree Griffin Burns talks about how teaching has forced her to dissect her writing process as well as her product which has made her a better writer, how as a teacher she’s embracing the writing process instead of leaning on students’ products and how sometimes the labels we assign to ourselves hold us back from finding out who we really are. Connect with Loree on Twitter @LoreeGBurns and with me @KateNarita.

Are you sad summer is officially over? I am. In fact, it hurts to say it aloud. But if you want to pretend that it’s still beach weather be sure to check out Sarah Brannen’s book A Perfect Day and live vicariously through her vivid characters. Thanks so much Sarah for Chalk + Ink’s podcast art.
Thanks for listening everyone! See you in two weeks.
