Why Write

An orange square with a grey question mark. The Text reads "Why Write? One Writer. One Question"

Why Write? is a super short podcast that asks one writer one question: why write? Of all the things they could do and ways they could spend their time, why sit in front of that blank page for hours, days, months or years?

Noè Harsel, herself a writer, talks to different types of writers each week to find out why they do it; why they write!

Visit the Why Write? website here, or listen to episodes via Spotify or Apple Podcasts.
