Ali Millar and Penny Wincer are not too busy to write. Except of course, sometimes they’re too busy to write as much as they would like. Join Ali and Penny as they navigate the world of writing, publishing and creativity whilst juggling the demands of motherhood, caring and other paid work, without losing themselves in the process. They’ll be discussing the challenges that often get in the way of sitting down to write, interviewing fellow authors and discussing their latest reads. They'll also be spurring each other on and reminding each other that they are not too busy to write. Ali Millar is the author of The Last Days (Ebury, 2022), a mother of 4, chair of many literary events and a Scot, newly relocated to London.

Penny Wincer is the author of Tender: The Imperfect Art of Caring (Hodder, June 2020), is a single parent to two kids, one of whom is d... more

I really like this podcast - informative & entertaining. Great to get some insight into the writing/publishing experience. Small criticism- Wish Ali had defined what ‘legal read’ means as I had no idea.
Been meaning to tune in for some time and so glad I just did. Episode 17 was a wonderful listen - looking forward to catching up on the back catalogue now.
In every episode there are gems that make me as an aspiring writer feel more confident about keeping on writing. The guests are consistently interesting and Penny and Ali are excellent as hosts. Highly recommended.
This podcast is such brilliant quality and I’m sure it is going to take off in the same sort of way Literary Friction has. Love the conversational smarts and intelligent interviewing of the two hosts, and the guests and analysis/book recommendations are so insightful and interesting. Love! ❤️ (Kate D)
Another interesting podcast and have come away with four more books to read, thank you!
