The Miles Franklin Literary Award is one of Australia’s most prestigious literary prizes. It’s awarded each year to a novel that’s of the highest literary merit and that presents Australian life in any of its phases.

The 2017 shortlist was announced on 18 June. The following authors were shortlisted:

We were thrilled to host all five writers on 19 June as they were interviewed for The Garret podcast. The Garret is dedicated to celebrating the best writers writing today, exploring how they best start, draft, complete and market their writing. We’re an official partner for the podcast.

These interviews have been combined in one podcast episode for your listening pleasure. You can listen below, or via The Garret’s website.
