“I highly recommend listening to the podcasts by Joanna Penn. Her joyful, lovable style and positive attitude is addicting, and her interviews dive right into the meat of the matter.” Mark S. R. Peterson
“Just listening to you and your guests convinced me that it’s possible to be an author (not just a writer).” Jan Vermeer
“The Creative Penn is an essential part of every author's toolkit. I especially love the futurist segments, tech updates, and industry updates–the curation and analysis is extremely helpful for keeping track of what's happening–and what's coming. Plus, Joanna's progressive and slightly rebellious mindset really resonates with me. Proud to be part of this exciting indie community.” E.A.Sandrose
