Hello and welcome to another must-listen episode of the Fremantle Press podcast for all authors, whether just starting out, emerging or established.
We know you all love to write, but writing a book isn’t the only way you can follow your passion. In our latest podcast, recorded live at the Business of Being a Writer event at Perth Festival Writers Week, Fremantle Press CEO Jane Fraser was joined by award-winning screen director Alison James, Black Swan State Theatre Company Literary Director Polly Low and Red Room Poetry Director Tamryn Bennett. The panel discussed adapting books for the stage, creating scripts, using dialogue to advance the story and publishing poetry in unconventional places – from a bus shelter to a packet of seeds.
This podcast is a part of the Four Centres Emerging Writers Program, supported by the State Government through the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and brought to you by the Fellowship of Australian Writers WA, Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers' Centre, Peter Cowan Writers Centre Inc., WA Poets Inc. and Fremantle Press.
