Authors Unedited is a podcast that aims to get to the heart of writing through the minds of authors.

Our guests are a mix of well-known authors, and authors you should know if you haven’t yet come across them.

The podcast sprang from my experience as a spoken word promoter.

For five years in London, and nearly a year in Edinburgh, great writers have passed through the doors of Listen Softly, shared their work, and it’s been so fantastic – but I never get a chance to sit and talk to them. They read, and it’s much loved by our audience, but I want more. I want to know how their minds work, what brought their characters and words into existence, what challenges they’ve faced on their journey, their hopes for the future, and much more.
