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.

Euan Mitchell is Australia's foremost expert on self-publishing, or indie publishing, as it is increasingly becoming known. He's helped thousands of people down the often perilous track of indie publishing. A writer, a publisher, a lecturer, his interest in this field began with the publication of his own novel, Feral Tracks in 1998.
Euan self-published Feral Tracks after it was rejected by 25 literary agents and publishers. After its success, Hardie Grant published Euan's first non-fiction publication, Self-Publishing Made Simple: the Ultimate Australian Guide. Euan then started his own publishing imprint, OverDog Press, to release the second edition of the work. In 2014 he published Your Book Publishing Options: How to Make and Market Ebooks and Print Books with the support of the Australian Society of Authors.
Euan has a PhD in Creative Writing from Victoria University. He taught at Box Hill Institute of TAFE and now teaches at Swinburne University.
