In the first 2020 installment of Novel Approaches, guest co-host Maggie Derrick and r.r. campbell explore what tropes and clichés are, the role genre plays in determining whether they’re fulfilling or unflattering, and the importance of working with editors and sensitivity readers.

Other topics include donuts with sprinkles, Merriam and/or Webster’s angst toward clichés, and robots, but not the fun kind.

Thanks to this episode’s sponsors: Dandelion Web Marketing, the University of Wisconsin Writers’ Institute, and Let’s Just Write!

And don’t forget to level up with our pals at Scrivener and Mockup Shots!
