Featuring works from our Bandit Fiction Presents… digital issues and The Read More Project (our straight-to-web publishings), each podcast will feature a handful of stories and poems specially selected by our team, an interview with one of the writers featured, and occasional interviews with writers who’ve impacted our lives. As well as all this, each month we’ll give a special shout-out to a creative project – a fellow publisher, literary award, or artistic endeavour – which we feel everyone needs to know about.
