WHAT OUR READERS SAY...
Just a few of the many emails and social media comments we've received from subscribers in 2013. To subscribe, click here.
“I think your interviews are great. I think the fact that you are a writer makes the tone a little different and probably puts the interviewee in a more open state – more a conversation with another writer than an interview.”
"I really loved your interview with Janine Burke in The Writer's Room. What an amazing, dynamic woman. I am now inspired to read more of her work, only having read the Tucker bio. I was so impressed and inspired by the way she has kept reinventing herself but also following her passions. But she seems to have a toughness to her too. I need to be like this! Anyway congratulations again on your choice of subject and great interview."
“I devoured this interview. I don't even know where to begin: I responded and related (without the impressive body of work, that is...) to so much of what Lohrey says.”
“I'm so happy to have discovered you and your interviews. It's just so, so nice to read an in-depth exploratory interview. I'm a psychotherapist and lament sometimes that so many things and experiences are becoming ‘morselised’ to the extent that we are constantly being asked to feed like birds, with diminishing and hyper-low expectations of being nourished!”
“I just want to say how much I love this interview. I can hear both your voices so clearly and the discussion made me feel inspired and less alone. I'm so pleased that you've started this series! A while ago I said there doesn't seem to be much help once a writer gets past a certain stage in their career, but I feel like this series might start to fill that hole. Thank you so much.”
“It looks GREAT! Beautifully formatted, easy on the eye, etc. Good luck with the rest of them, and with getting many subscribers, too.”
“Your Writer's Room Interviews is a great contribution to literature.”
“I love this one with Margo Lanagan so much. It kind of made my day. So glad these interviews exist.”
“I really enjoyed the interview with Amanda Lohrey, and it’s inspired me to get hold of more of her books. So much to read! It was exciting reading a conversation between two writers, as well. I was struck by her honesty.”
“Really loved this issue Charlotte! Roach had some very interesting things to say; I will have to re-read it a few times.”
“I just wanted to write and say thank you so much for yet another outstanding interview. I really enjoyed reading it, and have come away uplifted and inspired. Such a lovely feeling!”
“When this arrived the other day I realised I hadn't even read the first one so I printed them both off and got busy. I so loved them! ... It all made fascinating reading. I love the format too, so clearly preserving the voices and delightful personalities of the subjects. Wishing you gazillions more subscribers. Bring on the next edition...”
“I loved this interview with David, especially the dry stone walling, the quote about visions coming to prepared spirits, and being drawn to write only things set in dynamic times.”
“This is just a quick note to thank you so much for sending the interview … I love reading about writers and the way they work, and I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it.”
"That's such a sparky interview - Burke is just bursting with energy isn't she - she's very lovable and brainy and funny. Also, a small thing - but I love the calm authority of your introductions."
"Another great interview Charlotte - thanks so much! Always the right words at the right time."
"Just read this straight through, like ripping open a block of chocolate, but such clever,thoughtful chocolate. Fascinating."
“I loved your interview with Margo Lanagan – I really love getting this deep into creative processes – thanks for a great read!”
