In this episode of the School For Writers Podcast, Lauren interviews Paige Baschuk, one of her students in the Write Your Friggin’ Book Already™ program. This American expat is a mom of two, a Swiss landscape lover, and an amazing writer. As a journalist and creative writer, Paige always dreamed of becoming an author and sharing her art with the world. She is now in the process of writing her second novel and is here today to tell us all about this exciting journey.

Throughout the conversation, you’ll hear them discuss the roadblocks Paige has encountered to write her first novel during the pandemic, how thanks to WYFBA she has finally given herself permission to write, what nurturing her book looked like while caring for her toddlers at home, and even a few details about her new novel!
