S03E16 - Do we need women-only writing prizes?

Iain is joined by Donna Sørensen to talk about literary prizes for female authors. It's a conversation that leads to all sorts of related topics, including assumptions, perceptions, and how women are represented in the publishing world. It's fair to say that this is meant as a conversation starter and we'd love to hear your thoughts on any of the subjects and examples we cover on the show. Listen up and get in touch!

S03E14 - Performing, writing, editing, and going through the change

This week, Iain is joined by Nathan Filer, whose hotly anticipated debut novel, The Shock of the Fall, is published by HarperCollins in May. They cover lots of topics, hence the catch-all episode title, but the general theme is about how they both got published and the effect publication has on you as an author and a person. Iain recorded a reflection/extension to the episode on his other podcast, Chat Broome, which you can find in the show notes below. Enjoy!

Note: There is a slight echo on occasion. Iain’s fault. Sorry!

S03E13 - Writing about places

Iain is joined by poet and copywriter, Donna Sørensen, to talk about the effect of place on writing. From bizarre road accidents in Dublin to swallow murmurations in Somerset, where we live and what we see on our travels has a huge impact on what we write about. How does where we come from affect how we live and think now? Can you write about somewhere you’ve never been? Grab a cup of tea and listen in.

S03E12 - The blog is dead, long live the podcast

Iain flies solo this week and has an important announcement to make! He also talks about Chat Broome, his exciting new podcast project, and puts the blogging world to rights with what is very close to a rant or diatribe. It’s not really, but there are some important points to consider if you’re a writer and you’re thinking of setting up your own blog. Oooh, statistics. Iain also talks statistics. Not many people do that. It’s a big one folks. Get your headphones!
