SEARCH THE GARRET
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).
