“If you write, you’re a writer.” This week we talk to Ashley Hickson-Lovence about the creation of his debut novel The 392, and how he had to fit writing time in and around his job of being a teacher. Ashley shares his journey from poet to teacher to novelist and talks about his next project. Interview by Florence Reynolds.
Meanwhile, Simon and Steph introduce the Norfolk & Norwich Festival’s City of Literature strand which was announced last week.
Hosted by Steph McKenna and Simon Jones.
Music by Bennet Maples.
