Season 1 features eight Victorian-based writers talking about their craft. These writers represent many genres. The common thread is success: these writers are the top of their fields.

Season Two will feature leading writers from across Australia, and Season Three will include international writers. The Garret was born in Melbourne, a UNESCO City of Literature. And it is supported by our community. We are proud to partner with the State Library of Victoria, Readings, Writers Victoria and Swinburne University.
