With thanks to Claire Miller and the team at Fremantle Press for creating this special series of podcasts for Love to Read Local Radio.
Over the coming weeks we will be adding to “Love to Read Local Radio” with a series of nine podcasts. Keep in touch by making regular visits to this page or following the LTRL newsletters.
In our latest episode of Love to Read Local Radio, award-winning authors Holden Sheppard and A.J. Betts talk about how to juggle actual writing time with the business of being a writer. Listen here.
In the Love to Read Local Radio Archive:
What happens when you conference call with four talented Western Australian writers who are equally committed to short fiction as to long? Loads!
What do you get when you put two criminal masterminds together? David Whish-Wilson and Pol Koutsakis talking books! In this fascinating episode, the pair discuss the hero – or antihero – in Pol’s two books, Athenian Blues and Baby Blue.
Poets Caitlin Maling, Bron Bateman and Reneé Pettitt-Schipp bare all on what inspires their writing, and how they connect with humanity in their poetry.
Sara Foster and Alexander Thorpe have never met, but this podcast feels like the meeting of kindred spirits. From the classic mysteries of Agatha Christie and Josephine Tey to the police procedurals of Val McDermid and the atmospheric psychological thrillers of Nicci French, their discussion of their favourite books is a masterclass in international crime reads.
Westerly Magazine editors Catherine Noske and Josephine Taylor talk about their own novels, the writing they love and the good, the bad and the brilliant parts of their day jobs as literary editors. This episode provided an opportunity to celebrate the release of Catherine’s debut book The Salt Madonna and to foreground Josephine’s forthcoming novel Eye of a Rook.
In this Love to Read Local edition of the Fremantle Press podcast, novelist, journalist and Fogarty Literary Award shortlister, Emma Young, interviews her writing mentor Laurie Steed as well as her writing mentor’s mentor, Susan Midalia. Sound complicated? It’s not, it’s awesome.
