Welcome to The Garret, a podcast celebrating the best writers writing today. These writers represent many genres. The common thread is success: these writers are the top of their fields.

This is not a podcast about individual books or to promote a writer’s latest book. It is a series exploring how the best of the best start, draft, complete and market their writing.

Every episode is published alongside show notes and transcripts to increase educational value and access.

The Garret was born in Melbourne, a UNESCO City of Literature. And it is supported by our community. In our first two seasons we partnered with the State Library of Victoria, Readings, Writers Victoria and Swinburne University. From Season 3, we continue our partnership with these organisations and we welcome the Australian Society of Authors on board as well.

Season 1 launched on 3 November 2016 and featured Victorian writers talking about their craft. The season was shortlisted for the inaugural Cast Away Australian Podcast Awards in early 2017. Season 2 launched on 2 March 2017 and featured leading writers from across Australia. Season 3 began in June 2017 and featured our first international writer.
