Brilliant, honest podcast for writers

A wry, witty and utterly candid podcast about writing and being a writer. Highly recommended!

Excellent source of reassurance, information and company!

Thank you so much for this - having co-authored my first book with a friend I really miss the camaraderie while writing my second. The Honest Authors have stepped in and filled that gap beautifully.

Inspiring

Thank you so much for these podcasts. I’m in the development stages of my first book and I didn’t realise, what began as another excuse and a distraction from something I’ve been scared to commit to, would become the push I needed. So insightful, relatable and motivating.
