Description

The Miles Franklin Literary Award is Australia’s most prestigious literature prize. Together with Melbourne broadcaster Sally Warhaft, 2016 award winner A.S. Patric (Black Rock, White City) and Peggy Frew (Hope Farm) – whose novel was also shortlisted to win the coveted prize, discuss the question: what is life like for a writer before and after the Miles Franklin Award and do book awards guarantee commercial success?

Sally Warhaft is a regular host and commentator on ABC radio and the Wheeler Centre’s The Fifth Estate series.
