Alec Patric and Ryan O’Neill have an extraordinary writing partnership, and have been sharing their writing since 2010. Alec was awarded the Miles Franklin Literary Award for Black Rock White City in 2016. Ryan was then shortlisted for the Miles Franklin Literary Award for Their Brilliant Careers, a work which went on to receive the Prime Minister Literary Award in 2017.

In this interview, Alec and Ryan discuss the importance of writing partnerships and the role of feedback (and they explain exactly what good feedback looks like).

Also, this is the first interview with our new host, Astrid Edwards. Astrid has been with The Garret since the beginning, and she is now stepping out from behind the scenes.
