Writing Tips

Jonathan Goldstein shows no mercy

The host of CBC Radio's WireTap on the value of subjecting yourself to an extreme writing makeover.

- Jonathan Goldstein

Jonathan Goldstein is the host and producer of WireTap. He's a frequent contributor to public radio's This American Life and a columnist for The National Post.

Editor's note: We actually cut this tip out of a
longer piece of Jonathan's that we ran a while ago on Canada Writes. Theory into practice!
