Good episode? Give it some love!
Helen Cullen’s book The Lost Letters of William Woolf is charming, moving, quirky & possessed of great lists. It’s been described as “up lit”, but does that trivialise writing which has the power move or even upset the reader? In this episode Stevyn Colgan and Paul Waters chat with Irish author Helen Cullen about how she writes, why girls may be more reluctant than boys to give writing a go, lost letters, love and fear of clowns.
