The Value of an Apology with Brett de Hoedt
Apologies are good for the soul, but sometimes it’s difficult to find the words for an apology or know how to accept one. As writers, sometimes we make mistakes, or maybe something we write might upset readers. Knowing how to apologise and the value of an apology is a handy tool to have in your writers’ toolkit. Brett de Hoedt hosts The Hardest Word Podcast – a podcast of apologies. They are heartfelt, beautiful, moving, and some are incredibly well written with poetic language.
