Required listening for writers

I discovered this podcast shortly after I got my publishing deal and then binge-listened all series from episode one over the following year. I was bereft when I caught up as I now have to wait for new episodes to come out... I’ve found hearing about Holly and Gillian’s experiences fascinating and useful, plus the interviews with other authors and publishing professionals are great. I also really appreciate the fact it feels like you’re listening in to a conversation rather than being presented ‘at’.

Truly the best writing podcast

I’ve been listening to HA for years and absolutely adore it. I’ve now got my first book coming out and am relistening to old episodes which seem even more relevant years later. Funny, clever, and of course, honest.

Brilliant, honest podcast for writers

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