In this episode of the Kill Your Darlings Podcast we hijacked writers passing through Melbourne, as well as sitting down to dive into the nitty-gritty with a couple of locals.

We touch on genre-prejudice with David Mitchell (acclaimed author of Cloud Atlas and The Bone Clocks), interview Amazing Babe Rebecca Varcoe of the Emerging Writers’ Festival, share a reading from Luke Carman (author of An Elegant Young Man, winner of the UTS Glenda Adams Award for New Writing at the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards), listen to some music from Jack Colwell, and discuss scripts with our very own theatre and performing arts columnist, Jane Howard. Enjoy!


The Kill Your Darlings Podcast is also now available to download or stream through our SoundCloud page. You can get a taste of the podcast with our interview with David Mitchell.
