Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis presents:

In the latest episode of Elephant’s long-running, award-winning podcast and video series Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis…

Waylon meets his all-time favorite Elephant Journal writer, Lynn Shattuck, for the first time. They talk about writing, finding your voice as a writer, how to write about your life in a cathartic, genuine, way and Lynn’s thread through much of her writing: the loss of a beloved sibling.

“I was really fortunate. [Elephant] felt like a safe home for my writing. I felt welcomed from the beginning by the editors, and it was a cozy connection.” ~ Lynn Shattuck


“One of the things I love about writing—besides that it can help people feel less alone—is that it’s one of the only ways to slow down time.” ~ Lynn Shattuck

“Writing is a tool to savor things.” ~ Lynn Shattuck

Or listen to the podcast: 

“I think a lot of [genuine] writing is just being honest. I was a shy person growing up. I’m still pretty introverted. But once I was able to start being really honest on the page, that connected. I think the first piece that really went crazy on Elephant Journal was my postpartum piece. And I was super honest in that.” ~ Lynn Shattuck
