As part of National Writing Day, we’re also delighted to release our first series of podcasts: recordings from this year’s Rathbones Folio Sessions, ‘How To Write A Book In A Day’. Listen to them here.
The Sessions gathered some of the best writers at work today, to discuss the joys and pitfalls of their practice and process. The all-day sessions were chaired by writer, performer and comedienne A.L. Kennedy.
— Part One: The Beginning, with Kate Clanchy and Guy Stagg
— Part Two: The Middle, with Chloe Aridjis, Diana Evans and Alice Jolly
— Part Three: The End, with Raymond Antrobus, Carys Davies and Owen Sheers.
The final episode in the series presents the 2019 Rathbones Folio Mentorships Showcase – readings from this year’s young mentees, Adnaan, Aisha and Henna, as introduced by their mentors, Francesca Beard, Louise Doughty and Joe Dunthorne.
