Noè

Welcome to Why Write, a super short podcast that asks writers just that, why they write. Hi, I'm Noè Harsel, a writer and Chair of Writers Victoria, and I'm excited to chat to a diverse group of writers and simply ask, why write? I'm glad you're here with me. 

Today we have McKinley Valentine. McKinley Valentine is a neurodivergent writer who reads more Wikipedia articles than can possibly be healthy. She makes The Whippet, a cult hit newsletter of esoterica, unsolicited advice and zero contemporary politics. She is a writer researcher for the ABC's Hard Quiz and her short fiction has been published in Fantasy Magazine, Seizure, and Andromeda’s Spaceways’ Inflight Magazine.
