Packed to the drafters. As a fledgling writer I began listening to this podcast to see if there was anything useful in it for me. I have not been disappointed!! Hearing Val and Al’s guests and writers in residence share their stories, ideas, struggles and insecurities on the road to publication gives me the confidence to keep tapping away. As a lexophile, I LOVE word of the week!! Thank you for this entertaining, informative, inclusive podcast.

Writer in residence: Gabriel Bergmoser
Gabriel Bergmoser is a Melbourne based author and playwright. After starting out in the youth theatre scene with his early plays Windmills, Life Without Me and Hometown, Gabriel completed his Masters of Screenwriting at the Victorian College of the Arts. He co-founded the independent production company Bitten By Productions, entering the Melbourne theatre scene with the one-act comedy Reunion and the futuristic Babylon Trilogy of noir thrillers. Gabriel's 2015 Beatles comedy We Can Work It Out opened to sell out shows and rave reviews – it has also been performed in Queensland and returned to Melbourne stages for the 2018 Fringe Festival.
In 2019 Gabriel signed a two book deal with Harper Collins, with the first, The Hunted, published in July 2020 and the second, The Inheritance, following in July 2021. The Hunted was published in the UK by Faber and to date has been translated into Greek, French, Italian, German, Bulgarian and Danish. The film adaptation is currently being developed in a joint production between Stampede Ventures and Vertigo Entertainment in Los Angeles, with Gabriel writing the screenplay. He has since signed a second two book deal with Harper for his YA coming of age novel The True Colour of a Little White Lie.
