The Garret: Writers on writing

By Bad Producer Productions

Love writing? Looking to improve your writing? Or do you just love listening to writers talk about their craft? If yes, The Garret: Writers on Writing is for you. The Garret is a podcast writers for writers about the craft of writing. It is hosted Astrid Edwards, and her goal is to interview the best writers in Australia (and perhaps some from abroad) about how and why they do what they do. The Garret has ongoing partnerships with the State Library of Victoria, Writers Victoria and RMIT University. A defining feature of The Garret is our transcripts. Each interview is published with a complete transcript (so you don’t have to write anything down while you listen). The Garret was shortlisted for Best Literature, Arts and Music Podcast in both the 2017 and 2019 Australian Podcast Awards.  The Garret is a labour of love on behalf of all emerging writers. The Garret is supported by grants and the time of Astrid Edwards. It does not operate for revenue or profit. If you would like to support The Garret, simply subscribe wherever else you listen to your podcasts and join the conversation on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. You can also follow our host Astrid Edwards (including her published book reviews) at astridedwards.com.
