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