This is an edited sound recording of the best-selling Australian author Colleen McCullough outlining what she believes makes a good writer. She shares her belief that some children with potential as writers do not have parents or teachers who are supportive, while others with little talent are 'over encouraged'. Stating that the only way to practise writing is to read, McCullough says that she 'was an inveterate reader' of a wide range of material as a child. The recording was made in July 2008.
