Castlemaine. It’s cold as hell and hot as it too. You need to spend a lot of time indoors. But maybe that’s why there are so many creative people here.

It’s also a wonderful community that embraces and supports the arts.

I interview local writers and artists about their practice, and what drew them to live in the area.

  • Lisa D’Onofrio, director of the Castlemaine Children’s Literature Festival
  • Simmone Howell, award-winning author of Girl Defective
  • Jon Bauer, author of award-winning novel Rocks in the Belly
  • Adam Ford, novelist, poet, coordinator of local writing events and creator of twitter-prose
