LOUISE ADLER: PUBLISHING IN AUSTRALIA
Louise Adler is the CEO and Publisher-in-Chief of Melbourne University Press. She has had a long career in the publishing industry, and became a Member of the Order of Australia for Services to Literature in 2008.
In this interview, Louise discusses Australian book sales and what they mean for both publishers and writers, as well as how she seeks to capture the zeitgeist with that she publishes.
MEET OUR HOST
Astrid Edwards has been with The Garret from the beginning. In May 2018 she stepped out from behind the scenes and hosted her first interview, a conversation with Alec Patric and Ryan O’Neill about their writing partnership. She has also interviewed Jamila Rizvi, David Malouf, Michelle de Kretser, Tony Martin and Ceridwen Dovey, among others.
OUR NEXT INTERVIEW
Our next interview is with Robert Lukins. It will be released on Thursday 23 August 2018.
Robert Lukins has an extraordinary dedication to literary craft. His debut novel The Everlasting Sunday has built a momentum few first novels achieve, and is frequently recommended by the likes of no less than David Malouf.
Robert's shorter writing has appeared in Crikey, Overland, The Big Issue, Rolling Stone and Broadsheet.
ABOUT THE GARRET
Love writing? Looking to improve your writing? Or do you just love listening to writers talk about their craft? If yes, The Garret is for you.
We interview the best writers writing today and discuss how they start, draft, edit, publish and market their work.
Our goal is to interview the best writers in Australia, including all of winners of the Miles Franklin Literary Award. We are well on our way there. Each interview is published with a complete transcript and interactive show notes (so you don’t have to write anything down while you listen).
