So You Want To Be A Writer with Valerie Khoo and Allison Tait: Australian Writers' Centre podcast

In our last show for the year we reveal our top 10 most downloaded interviews for 2014 (in no particular order): Graeme Simsion, Fleur McDonald, Allison Rushby, Kylie Mason, Deborah O'Brien, Liane Moriarty, Lex Marinos, Kylie Ladd, Chris Ducker
and Charlotte Wood.

And we put our very own Allison Tait on the spot by surprising her as our Writer in Residence this week!

Thanks also for all your support. We've finished the year in the #1 spot for Literature on iTunes. See you in 2015!
