Episode 56 – LaQuette Discusses Writing and Reading Through a Critical Lens

In part one of our interview with author LaQuette, we discuss her Critical Lens workshop. The class is designed to teach authors, reviewers and readers how to use literary criticism to view your own work, or the books you’re reading, through an alternative lens. For authors this can provide critical insight into alternative perspectives that can help you identify and eliminate problematic and harmful content before you publish.
