The Writer’s Mix Tape: Tony Birch with Jonnie Von Goes

When

Event Status

Writers’ influences extend far beyond the things they read. The creative impulse is driven by experience, by people they’ve met, places they’ve been and, in many cases, the music they’ve listened to.

In partnership with Melbourne’s iconic 3RRR, The Writer’s Mix Tape is an exploration of the music that has run through our writers’ lives.

Each month a different 3RRR broadcaster will interview a notable writer about the songs that have most moved and shaped their career. Short snippets from the songs will be interspersed between intimate chat, outlining personal and writerly connections to each piece of music.

Playwrights and poets, novelists and essayists, with some of Melbourne’s finest broadcasters we dig a little deeper to find the soundtrack to their creative and professional lives.
