Hi, my name is Rosemary Puddy and I am the presenter of The Book Podcast, a weekly podcast dedicated to promoting Australian Women Writers of fiction and non-fiction.
Why a podcast and why a focus on Australian women writers?
My initial inspiration came from reading about The Stella Prize, a major literary award that celebrates Australian women’s writing and an organisation that champions cultural change.
The Stella Prize seeks to:
- recognise and celebrate Australian women writers’ contribution to literature.
- bring more readers to books by women and thus increase their sales
- provide role models for schoolgirls and emerging female writers
So I looked at my overloaded bookshelves, to see how many Australian women authors I had. As I am always buying books it was quite a surprise to find that I had very few indeed, in fact I only had six. Six!
I started the podcast to talk to and promote as many women authors as possible through my podcast, website and social media. I’ve met wonderful people along the way and read some great stories from all genres.
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I’d love to hear from you.
