Nothing in the creative industries is straightforward, so it can pay to look behind the scenes. Who's doing what with whom where? How does it all work? And most importantly - how do you break in? I bring interviews with Brisbane's most interesting and insightful creative professionals, as well as the latest in literary news and reviews. I'm Ash: writer, unwilling academic and compulsive participant in Brisbane's thriving creative communities. We live in a city forever on the cusp of greatness. All it needs is a little push. Being a writer means seeking stories wherever they are - let me know what you're up to, and I'll check it out!
