Do you have a story to tell? Here at Writer on the Road, it’s the journey that matters. Regardless of where you are on your writing journey, Writer on the Road will inspire you to take your dreams and make them happen. So sit back and enjoy the show as I bring you guests who know what it’s like to go it alone and who are willing to reach out to the rest of us by sharing their stories; authors, publishers, entrepreneurs—people at all stages of the writing journey, just like you and me. It’s time, dear listeners, to answer the question for yourself: do you have a story to tell?
The Aussie Indie Podcast Launch Episode
Introducing a new direction for Writer on the Road Productions, including our Publishing and Podcast activities. Although we've always been about bringing to our listeners the latest and best Indie publishing advice - as exemplified by our Business of Writing Podcast Series, Author Success Stories Series and magazine, plus our courses and workshops - we're now doubling down on the talent in our own part of the world.

And, one day, we even hope to have our own conference. But, first steps are small steps. You can join us in our new adventure by signing up to our newsletter here:
