The Garret podcast

Love writing? Looking to improve your writing? Or do you just love listening to writers talk about their craft?

If you answered 'yes' to any of these, tune into the Garret to hear interviews with writers and gain valuable insights into the craft and business of writing.

Some of the best writers in the business discuss the ins and outs of writing, from putting together a first draft of a book to marketing the finished product.

Each episode is accompanied by show notes and transcripts (so you don't have to furiously scribble notes while you're listening!).

The interviews

Hear from a range of established writers including Trent Dalton, Richard Fidler, Kate Grenville, Larissa Behrendt, Graeme Simsion, Christos Tsiolkas, Don Watson, Alice Pung, Morris Gleitzman, Hannah Kent, Garth Nix, Thomas Keneally and many more.

The interviews also feature editors, literary agents and publishing industry figures including Michael Webster, Morry Schwartz, Mark Rubbo, Michael Heyward and Kate Torney.

The host

The Garret podcast is hosted by bibliophile, writer and teacher Astrid Edwards, one half of Bad Producer Productions.

It was co-founded with Nicolas Brasch, Chair of Writers Victoria. 

The Garret celebrates Melbourne's UNESCO City of Literature status, and is presented in partnership with State Library Victoria, Readings, Writers Victoria, Swinburne University and the Australian Society of Authors.
