Podcast S1, Ep 2: Patrick Gale


The Writers’ Block podcasts are conversations between writer Polly Roberts and other Cornwall based writers looking at why we write, the writing process, and the part Cornwall plays in our work.

In this episode, novelist Patrick Gale talks about the intricacies of his writing process; research and use of notebooks, the composting element and his longhand first drafts. Patrick’s generosity gives us an insight into the life and work of a writer, who, in his own words, has never had a grown up job. Patrick’s latest novel, Mother’s Boy, is based on Charles Causley’s early life and is available now.
