Bailey's Writing & Editing Tips

Bailey's Writing & Editing Tips

Back in 2009, Morgen started a podcast called ‘Bailey’s Writing Tips’ which ran (for 100+ episodes) until 2014 when she found she was struggling with time so she removed them. Morgen resurrected them in April 2019 and they are listed below. You can also find them on iTunes.


If you listen to podcasts, you might like to know that Morgen's all-time favourite (if she had to choose one) is Writing Excuses (“15 minutes long because you’re in a hurry and we’re not that smart”… they are!) but she also likes ‘I Should Be Writing’, ‘World Book Club’, ‘Books and Authors’ and ‘The Penguin Podcast’, although she subscribes to many others, and will add the details to this page.


In the meantime, you might like to listen to where Morgen was hosted by Paul Teague (click here) and Morgen was a guest for Theresa Stoker of the fabulous The Write Club podcast (click here to listen to that). Exciting stuff. 🙂
