Nicole Dieker

Nicole Dieker is a freelance writer, the editor of The Billfold, and the host of the Writing & Money podcast. Her work has also appeared in Boing Boing, Popular Science, The Toast and numerous other publications. Nicole regularly speaks on or facilitates panels about the intersection of art and money, and her practical, actionable freelance advice is available at The Freelancer's "Ask A Freelancer" column and The Write Life's "Pitch Fix." Nicole's debut novel, The Biographies of Ordinary People, was published in May 2017.

Teaching philosophy: I have two jobs, as a teacher. First, I need to ask the questions that uncover the real problems you are having in your writing. Then, I need to ask the questions that help you solve them.

Writers I return to: Lev Grossman, L.M. Montgomery, Cheryl Strayed—I read about a book a week, and there are a lot of books and writers I love, but these are three of the writers I consistently re-read. Online, I'll always click on a new piece by Nicole Chung, Ann Friedman, Roxane Gay, Meghan O'Connell, or Daniel Mallory Ortberg.

Favorite writing advice: "Remember: when people tell you something’s wrong or doesn’t work for them, they are almost always right. When they tell you exactly what they think is wrong and how to fix it, they are almost always wrong." —Neil Gaiman
