Author Not Present is a podcast in which Louise Hare, Christina Carè, and Peter J Coles critique anonymous submitted pieces.
In the first episode, they discuss ‘Twenty Minutes’ – a story of loss and friendship. Listen to find out what they liked and what they thought could be improved as they deal with structure all the way down to pedantic line-editing.
We highly encourage you to read the story before listening to the episode so you can follow along.
You can download the first draft of the piece here: Twenty-Minutes
