Episode 205 – Tenderstem (with Claire Askew)

“It’s the darkest, most miserable book ever.” Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! 2017 was a bit miserable but hopefully this podcast has been a shining light in your life. To round off the year I talked to Claire Askew, author of All the Hidden Truths from Hodder Books, and This Changes Things from Bloodaxe.

She talks the difference between writing novels and poetry, as well as her work with Scottish Book Trust and Write Like a Grrrl. We also chat about her work with the Craigmiller Library and how board games can encourage reading.

Finally, she reads a brand new poem based on a prompt from last month’s guest.
