We've delved into the archives to find the best conversations with leading writers in every major genre, covering everything from dealing with criticism to character development and writer's block.

To start, we recommend this special episode about Demystifying Publishing, where award-winning Penguin author Derek Owusu, literary agent Crystal Mahey-Morgan, and editor Tom Avery talk to host Leena Norms about how to bring a book into the world. Covering everything from creative inspiration to finding an agent, to working with booksellers, this is a must-listen for every aspiring writer, whether you're only just putting pen to paper or you're ready to pitch your story.
