Free for gold star members

Desert Island Books​ is  exactly what it sounds like. We interview a kickass author every month and find out what books they love rubbing on their faces, which books they feel have made them the writer they are today, how they write, what they write, what it’s like to be living the author dream, and all those kinds of glorious writerly things. Come hang with your favourite writers!

Want to be a better writer?

Or just to laugh at bum jokes? Either way, you need the famous Writers’ HQ newsletter. You know what to do – put your thing in the thing.
