The Garret: Writers on writing
About This Show
Welcome to The Garret, where we interview the best writers writing today.
The Garret features the best Australian and international writers talking about their craft. The common thread is their success: they are at the top of their fields.
The Garret is not a podcast series to promote books. It is a series to explore how the best of the best start, draft, edit and publish their writing.
The Garret was born in Melbourne, a UNESCO City of Literature. And it is supported by our community. We are proud to partner with the State Library of Victoria, Readings, Swinburne University and Writers Victoria.
