RETURNING IN MARCH 2019

We'll be back in your feed with new interviews each Thursday from March 2019.

Why so late, you ask? Well, our host Astrid Edwards is spending February at Foundry 658's 'Bootcamp for Creatives', a new initiative from the State Library of Victoria and ACMI (the Australian Centre for the Moving Image).

We also have our first live event at 6pm on Tuesday 26 March at the State Library of Victoria. We hope to see you there.

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).
