Welcome to the Fremantle Press Podcast.

We are proud to announce Holden Sheppard as our new host for 2019. Holden, who won the City of Fremantle T.A.G. Hungerford Award for his soon-to-be-published novel, Invisible Boys, said he hadn't let any of the authors leave the studio until they'd spilled their secrets on their writing process and what they’d recommend to other writers. Holden has interviewed five authors to date representing a range of adult genres: Marcella Polain, Driving into the Sun (literary fiction); Dave Warner, River of Salt (crime fiction); Anne-Louise Willoughby, Nora Heysen: A Portrait (art biography); plus the poets Nandi Chinna, The Future Keepers and Caitlin Maling, Fish Song. These interviews will be rounded off by the release of  three podcasts recorded at the Business of Being a Writer during Perth Festival Writers Week. They focus on funding your writing through grants, residencies and awards, building your author profile through the media and social media, and going beyond books to explore writing in other mediums.

If you like what you hear, please share this podcast with your networks or consider purchasing one of the books featured from your local bookstore or online.
