ALEC PATRIC & RYAN O’NEILL’S WRITING PARTNERSHIP
Alec Patric and Ryan O’Neill have an extraordinary writing partnership, and have been sharing their writing since 2010. Alec was awarded the Miles Franklin Literary Award for Black Rock White City in 2016. Ryan was then shortlisted for the Miles Franklin Literary Award for Their Brilliant Careers, a work which went on to receive the Prime Minister Literary Award in 2017.
In this interview, Alec and Ryan discuss the importance of writing partnerships and the role of feedback (and they explain exactly what good feedback looks like).
Also, this is the first interview with our new host, Astrid Edwards. Astrid has been with The Garret since the beginning, and she is now stepping out from behind the scenes.
THE GARRET LIVE AT THE LIBRARY
The Garret LIVE at the Library is a series held in partnership with the State Library of Victoria.
We held our first event on World Book Day (23 April 2018) with Christos Tsiolkas. Christos discussed the politics of writing and performed the first reading of his current work in progress, Damascus. Listen (or read the transcript) here.
Our next live podcast will be recorded on Monday 25 June 2018 with Benjamin Law. Ben will discuss representation in literature and why it matters. If you are there on the night, you will get to ask him questions.
We will then hold our third live podcast event on Monday 18 September 2018... Ideas on who we interview are welcome! Tweet us @GarretPodcast.
