216. Simple Creative Copy, Creative Writing, and Life in General

My guest today is Stephanie Cansian. She runs a small copywriting agency called Say It Simply, but along the line she had an epiphany that affected both her work and her personal life, notably her emotional eating habits. She lost weight, became re-engaged in her work, wrote a book, and is now working on another book. It’s a fascinating and very open discussion.

#69: running and teaching creative writing

Nita Sweeney is the award-winning wellness author of the running and mental health memoir, Depression Hates a Moving Target: How Running with My Dog Brought Me Back from the Brink. She has written other books since, but is also a certified meditation leader, mental health advocate, and ultramarathoner. Nita founded Mind, Mood, and Movement to support well-being through meditation, exercise, and writing practice, and another group called The Writer’s Mind, to share writing practices in order to produce publishable work. She lives in central Ohio with her husband, Ed, and their yellow Labrador retriever, Scarlet. She was a really informed guest, and exuded a feeling of calm and content. Please have a listen to our conversation.
