Funny and relatable. Definitely worth listening to for anyone on their writing journey.

Jamie Greenwood


Without Fail, Give a Listen!

For anyone who has stared at the “blank page,” not knowing what the hell to put there, and wanting to avoid channelling Jack Torrance, remember that all work and no play makes for some dull writing. That’s where the Failing Writers come in. Press play, give a listen, and let them bring some playfulness to your writing process. They offer clever, funny fare, tales of their own adventures (and quite a few mis-adventures) and a string of guests with practical advice from the trenches. What’s more, they’ll make you want to write, if only to keep the Boys from yelling at you for not doing the work. Promise you won’t be disappointed. If you are, ask them for your money back.

Engaging, inspiring and frequently hilarious

This is a gem of a podcast. As well as hearing fascinating interviews with guests and inspiring updates on the hosts’ admirable endeavours in the world of writing, you also get to spend a little while in the company of three talented, down-to-earth and funny fellows who are bound to brighten up your day

Not even a writer and I love this podcast. Escape for a bit into the world of 3 blokes being funny about stuff mostly related to writing ( or not ). There is something about this podcast that scoops you up, entertains you and gently drops you back an hour later feeling smiley....



Laugh and learn

On one level, you can let the Failing Writers just be there: join some good mates on an entertaining ramble. On another, their own attempts and reflections on writing, coupled with those of their actually successful writing guests mean you keep learning with them. Oh, and then there’s the jingles that are way better than Adam Buxton’s. Subscribe, people, subscribe.

Brilliantly real

I love these guys, their attitude to writing is brilliantly real and honest. I recommend this to anyone who is feeling stressed about their writing. Thank you for the podcast, long may it continue.
