It’s a very special episode this week, as we present the full, extended interview with Margaret Atwood conducted by our Young Ambassadors Emily Webb and Grace Murray earlier in the year. The interview covers everything from how Margaret started writing, why her novels tackle such challenging subjects and her top 5 tips for new writers.

Hosted by Simon Jones, writer and Digital Marketing Manager at the National Centre for Writing.
