TOP WRITERS RADIO SHOW
The Top Writers Radio Show goes out on Fresh FM, and in 2017 ran from April to June.
The fortnightly programmes were first broadcast on Saturdays at 3 pm, and then repeated on Mondays at 11 am.
The programmes are presented by Gaelynne Pound. She interviews a local published writer, covering their influences, style, writing tips, future projects, and some music that has inspired or influenced them.
Each programme begins with a PEN section from Dana Wensley, the PEN (NZ) representative for freedom of speech, focusing on a different author or issue.
If you miss the shows when they are broadcast, you can listen to the podcasts, which are uploaded to this website a couple of days after the second broadcast (see below).
