Brain, Child Magazine What's New? Plus Paid Writing Opportunities With Editor-In-Chief Marcelle Soviero - Beyond Your Blog Podcast #61

When I interviewed Editor-in-Chief of Brain, Child, Marcelle Soviero in November of 2014, it was one of my most popular podcasts. Even though my podcast was fairly new at the time and I didn’t have as many listeners as I do now, it was so well received, that as of today, it is the 10th most listened to podcast out of 60 episodes! When I heard that there were lots of new things going on at Brain, Child, I knew I wanted to have Marcelle back to fill us in. If you want to know what’s new and/or how to get published on Brain, Child magazine, this podcast is for you!
