The third episode of our in-conversation podcast, Crossings, is here. Today, we share a special conversation between Peggy Frew and Mark Hewitt.

Peggy and Mark met in September for this conversation, having been acquainted in the past. They spoke about the ethics of writing fiction, their individual writing processes, making a living as an artist and more broadly the public and private identity of being a writer. There’s great wisdom and food for thought in this conversation. We hope you enjoy listening.  

Peggy Frew’s work has been shortlisted for the Stella Prize and the Miles Franklin Literary Award, longlisted for the International Dublin Literary Award, and the winner of the Barbara Jefferis Award. Peggy is a member of the critically acclaimed and award-winning Melbourne band Art of Fighting. Wildflowers is her fourth novel. 

Mark Hewitt is a writer from Melbourne. His debut fiction, the short story Doorknocker, was published in Empty Mind Plaza in 2022. Westie is his first novel.
